Sea Scape

Look inside the scape called sea

until the ocean owns your eyes;

search beneath the surface shine

until its depth dispels its lies.

Climb your stare upon each wave

until you see all shades of green;

swim your vision past itself

until your sight becomes the scene.

  1. "until the ocean owns your eyes"
    "Climb your stare"
    This is so beautiful! I am longing for the beach and am now going outside so to let my sight become the scene of beautiful winter into spring.

  2. Thanks, Amy!
    I always enjoy reading your poetry paintings.

  3. "Climb your stare upon each wave" That's what I wish I was doing today! But poetry is as good as the ocean, I think. Thanks for posting!

  4. I am not an ocean person, but this kind of looking and staring works on the high dry prairies of Eastern Colorado, too.
