At the Beach

There is no man present that I can see
Who looks upon the ocean wide and blue
And understands not it's lasting beauty
For it is there a spirit dares to lift
There one appreciates life's little gifts
Where fragments of home crack beneath your feet
It is here, at last, I shall take a seat
This panoramic view swallows me whole
Whilst I gaze on humbled by such smallness
I let that truth absorb into my soul
And nature will do whatever it must
Whether it be a soft breeze or harsh gust
I'll watch as fates and failures slip away
Into the thresholds of another day

    Timothy that's an awesome sonnet man, I Love It !!! It's amazing to me, how the ocean has such a profound affect on people in general. Even those who live hundreds or thousands of miles away, they too are pulled to the ocean. They take their yearly vacations, almost like it's a ritual. Great work brother, your description puts me there. Thank You again for all your comments on my sonnets. It is very much appreciated. Douglas.

    Glad you liked it Douglas! That means a lot considering that sonnets are pretty much your forte... Btw have u ever looked up different rhyme schemes? I notice you usually write with English rhyme scheme but there are many others that are fun to try...
