On your sandy shore,
water so clear,
tickling toes,
splashing my nose.
Your ebbing waves,
steady and constant,
like my heartbeat.
You envelop me,
with a warm embrace,
amazed by your grace.
Off in the distance,
people laugh and sing.
Solid rock by your side,
keeping you warm,
calming your tides.
Reflecting now,
a day well spent
in a watery world,
feeling happy and content.


  1. nice..i would be content there as well..on the shore, the Solid Rock as my companion...smiles.

  2. Um, nothing like an ocean of love and words to treat us to a fine poem like this. i like the idea of the far-off people adding their backdrop to your contented state.

    Really enjoyed this!

  4. Thank you! I so needed this escape today...no matter how brief! lol I do so love the sea, and for so many of the same reasons you do, as evidenced by this wonderful pen. Again...seriously...Thank you! :)

  5. Sounds and looks like such a content place to be and you described it beautifly.

  6. :) Exactly how I feel about the ocean.

  7. Thanks so much everyone! I really appreciate your thoughts and kindness.
    The beach has always been a source of enjoyment and peace for me. No matter what is happening in my life..being at the beach, I feel calm again.
