The Ocean

The Ocean

A Poem by 50centdolly

The thunderous sound

It makes.

It shakes

The air around

This beach.

 

The deep abyss

Holding wonders

Still thunders

Lightning gladly missed.

 

This thunderous sound

It makes

Unlike lakes

Babbling over-ground

Tame in every way.

 

The ocean

Is fierce

The motion

To be feared

The sea

To be respected

To me

Every movement unexpected

 

The calm water

Provides peace

Provides tranquility

Never for lease

Never a liability.

 

In the deep

I submerge myself

Slowly I seep

Peace I feel.

 

Silence muffled

Reality fading

Shuffled thoughts calm

The Sun’s ray’s charade

Happens around me.

 

Fish pass by

Movements once slow

Speed up as they shy

Away as closer I grow.

 

Eyes shuttered

I stay a moment longer

Before my breath stuttered

And I rise feeling stronger.

 

Wild, un-tame

Beautiful in a frame

But never the same

As its presence

 

Its sentiments

To everyone

Who respects it

Protects it

Relaxes in it

Gives in to it

To the ocean.

 

The ocean

That provides peace

That provides tranquility

That is never for lease

That is never a liability

 

The ocean

.....I'm speechless!! I honestly have no words to describe the extent of the solemnity and profundity of this gem of a poem! Holy kwap! I love the flow, the change un stanza structure, the way you have one stanza repeat, and the stragglers (what I call lines that end stanzas but have no rhymes)! This is simply golden!! Absolutely amazing!!

This is quite exceptional. Your use of form gives the poem a nice lulling rhythm, much like the waves of the ocean. I look forward to seeing what you write next :)
