The Beauty of the Ocean

The Beauty of the Ocean

A Poem by The Disconsolate Muse

The rolling and crashing of the waves
The mark of ages past from untold generations
Through war and peace
Trial and disease
The ocean remained constant, an unchanging force
Constant in the change
Crashing against the shore
To man, the ocean has always been strange
It represents both beauty and rage
Its regality is without error
The cool breeze blowing in from the south
The salty air upon one's face
The beauty of the ocean can be achieved in no other place
The white foam upon the sand
The water going around where you stand
The sun beating down upon you
The seagulls in the air they fly through
In the land, sky, or sea
All creatures contribute to the ocean's plea:
"Submit to me, and let us go hand in hand, for in the end, it is I who will stand."
So while it lasts, and we are in this place
Let us adore the ocean in all of its beauty and grace

The descriptions are eloquently written and provide some powerful imagery, it reminded me of my harborside hometown. The second half paints a colorful scene for the reader and places them within it and the closing lines state a nice message.

The ocean is one true constant throughout the ages, beautiful and fierce all at once. Thank you for sharing!
