The Coastline

A Poem by Coyote Poetry

In 1991, I drove from Michigan to California. I wrote this poem the day I saw the Ocean.

The Coastline


I fell in love with her on a December morning.
I stop my truck and I was star struck at her beauty.
Her power.

I walk quickly to her.
She was dancing on the shore.

Nothing could equal her beauty.
I gazed in wonder for hours sitting on the sand.

How could I have not escape to her beauty before this day?

Now I walk up and down the shore.
Watching the waves.
The beauty of her be-witched my heart.

I knew when I left her.
I would yearn for her sight.
Never be complete till she was dancing my  feet again.

My love was the Pacific ocean.
The peaceful sea.

I wish to be with her today.

                 Coyote
               December 1992

I wrote a poem about the sea today, before discovering yours. I couldn't agree more. Being by the sea is one of the best, if not THE best, places on this earth. East coast, West coast, Carribean. All different, except for their individual beauty. I loved this piece, glad I found it!

I grew up on the coast of San Diego, California right on the beach. I love this poem, it shows how enticing and powerful the ocean is. Very intimate piece. :)

The first time I saw the ocean was when I was 37. I remember my heart racing before she was even in sight. The air had a different smell and I could feel the sheer power and mystery of her. Then I saw her...I cried. Loved this very much :)

"I stop my truck and I was star struck at her beauty." - The first past is written in present tense the second part in past tense. I

"I walk quickly to her.
She was dancing on the shore." - Same issue here. It made for a slightly uncomfortable read because I was trying to fathom out which tense I was suppose to be reading in.

Nonetheless, the rest of the poem was nice and pleasurable to read!
