Oceans are calm tonight

Oceans are calm tonight

A Poem by B.J

Life across the waterways


Oceans are calm tonight
The moon is full, gleaming
Upon the water ways
The cliffs of the coast, lighted
Glistening by a lighthouse
A flicker of light across an ocean
An immense light across a tranquil inlet
By the window, stand, feel the night air
Oceans spray lifts your spirits
Where the ocean meets the land
Stand quietly, listen, hear the roar of the ocean
Stones clash to and fro,
As the tides begins for the day
With rhythmic motions, slowly turning
With an eternal emptiness

Wind swept oceans
Create untold drama from long ago
Each sweep of tide flows into your mind
Stories of human misery, swept to the floor of the ocean
Sounds and thoughts, flood the floor of the ocean

With oceans calm
Tonight the ocean is strong
Have faith, the ocean will hold you steady
Nature of the ocean, lay in fold around the earth
Now hear the long roar of the ocean retreating
The breath of the wind, as it edges it way
Across the worlds oceans

The world lies before us, so vast and new
Wind swept oceans, confused of many battles
Stories of loves lost, beautiful and new
Sometimes swept away
