THE MYSTERY OF THE SEA

Oh, the mystery of the Sea! What treasures lie within your depths? I stood upon the rocks looking out to sea, And I heard the roaring waves As they came crashing into the shore, It sounded like a thousand voices Calling from out of the past. I could smell a salty mist in the air, The misty spray felt cool upon my skin As the waves splashed against the rocks, The moon shone through a twilight sky And reflected itself upon the water. I stood there thinking of how the sea was a mystery, It's been around since the dawning of God's creation, Oh, if only the sea could talk! What amazing tales she could tell, About the mariners who sailed the ancient world, Intriguing stories of adventure, mystery, And romance on the high seas. As I kneeled down with my hands in the water I tasted the misty salty air upon my lips, I wanted to say goodbye to a sea that has Always intrigued me since childhood, Although the sea began here at creation It won't end until the worlds end.

Hello Don, I like the sound of water. I like watching the waves come to the shore.It is calming for the soul.The water is relaxing and peaceful. Have a nice day my friend.
