Ocean Life

Unrelentless wind blows upon the ocean air
 surf rolls in like thunder time and again
White dots spray and scatter and disperse
rocks worn by centuries of wave beatings
the waves like a drum repeat, beat after beat
 sea weeds dance and sway with the current
Shifting sand dunes form new shapes
Similar to the moons lunar surface
Seagulls cry and circle in the hundreds
A daily meal found on the floor below
Dark spots merge out of the water
Not rocks but moving heads of seals
 Out hunting for their daily meals.
Life around the ocean  keeps moving
Just like the daily tides that flow.

    Beautiful and deep Phyllis, I love the slow motion imagery in my mind, after reading your poem. I have a tide inside me, one that keeps flowing like the ocean. I wish I could be like the sea. always~ FLOWING.... enjoyed~ LINDA

    I like to walk along the sea's edge, watching the waves, hear the seagulls cry, pick fine shells or stones - but in the boat ..... oh ... I get so seasick. - I will be to your sandy beach Phyllis. - Beautiful poem. - (Read my "love letter" ..... it might give you a smile) - oxox / / Anne-Lise :)
