Sonnet to the Sea



Beyond this door eyes are drawn in wonder

To gaze, drink in, the deepest ocean blue

Rhythmic rise, crushing fall, liquid thunder

This heart with drowning soundscape to imbue.

High above a stringless kite flicks her tail

Swoops and loops, dances to a melody

None but she can summonforth, hear or hale

Freedom soars with joyful dexterity.

Return attention to wat’ry playground

Sleak-skinned dolphins rival theme park’s display

While the splash of wardrobe-whale does resound

Fountain foam my focus to waylay.

Would that I could with similar pleasure

Traverse this life aware of its treasure.

    • I’ve never tried something like a sonnet. Don’t really like reading them! But did have fun with agh the counting 😁. Thank you for your ongoing encouragement. Def worth a gin or 2!
