In Praise of the Ocean

by dovemarie

Oceanic tides inward and outward sweeping
Seagulls their circling flight keeping

The ocean is a powerful prayer
To approach it, at times I do not dare!

Delightful spray tosses up sprinkles
Over children at the edge of watery sand
Running, wading, sunshine tanned

Praise and honor to ocean and sky
Across choppy waters, sailing ships ply

Colossal waves like a cathedral towering
Massive, awesome, overpowering

Roaring waves roll towards the shore
Depicting a heavenly monument
A sight to bless and adore!
