Beside the sea

A simple walk
along the sand
to dream daydreams
with you there &
to laugh & love
beside the sea
when time was long
& hearts were free.

(134 characters incl. spaces)



The sea
casts rage
upon us
& we’re shocked.
Do we forget
how much we take from it
& never give back?

(100 characters incl. spaces)


Tall Ships

Tall ships
in tales we’re told
crossed the seas
in days of old
many times
they sailed earth ’round
& many lands
the sailors found.

(130 characters incl. spaces)


Tales of Doom

Down in deep
& darkly sea
where no man goes
& fish swim free
the fate of ships
that Doom did meet
is told in tales
at Neptune’s feet.

(133 characters incl. spaces)


Whale song

Beyond the seashore
in the Deep
where mermaids swim
& winged fish fly
the whale sings low
a mournful song
that echoes like
an ocean’s sigh.

(139 characters incl. spaces)


Before you came

Before you came
life was a daisy chain
laughs were easy
friends were joy
the sun shone warm
in an ever blue sky
& of confusion
I have no reflections.
