Seashore Symphony

As fiddler crabs play There’s no music in the air Ugly eyes just stare Gulls in perfect flight Bring the music to the night Moonlight plays its part Dolphins come around And they lend their perfect sound Music time is near Maestro needed now Sounds need direction somehow Errant tones comply Sounds that do not blend Are now blocked by friendly wind Unity now reigns Masters touch is here Softens harshness to the ear Song is written now Blessed voices play As rhythmic surf shows the way Sweet repose is near. Question why I’m here And I’ll tell you right away My troubled soul is now healed. Written By John Posey 04/14/13

    As I was reading this I had a picture in my mind of someone holding a seashell to their ear, to here the sound of the ocean waves...Beautiful imagery in this poem! I enjoyed reading it!....You might like to read one of my new poems titled, "Tale Of A Mermaid".

    Very nice write Jake, I prefer rivers and lakes but the Ocean is beautiful too. In Perth we are surrounded by beautiful beaches. Beautiful place to come too...Loved your poem Jake, thank you for sharing. Are you okay, buddy, don't hear of you much these days, hope you are well, my friend....Peter

    Something about the sea brings peace and inner beauty can grow. The sound and sights along with the smell that comes with the waves soothes the soul. A place you can always go and remember too.
