The Ocean

From the book “Write the Poem” introduced to me by a Teach Write friend, Donnetta Norris.


The Ocean

It sparkles in the sun

A million glittery diamonds stretching on without end

as far as the eye can see

Rhythmic waves billowing, a hypnosis for the viewer

Tides rolling in and out…some calm, some rough, like days in our lives

Foamy bubbles cascade onto the sand, an overflowing washing machine

gently cleansing your feet and your soul

carrying your worries back out

into the glittery abyss
