Sound of the Sea

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Re-springing Your Step.”



My feet are calibrated
By ocean sands
As seas push onto the earth
And pulled greedily back again
Like curtains opening and closing
From breaking of the dawn
To dying of the day
My soul is free
Knowing the force controlling
Waters of the sea –
That same magnitude of power
Is somehow, in some way
Looking out for me

  1. I love the ocean. I love standing at the waters edge and letting the waves crash over my feet. It makes me feel like I’m being cleansed, all the negative energy that I’ve stockpiled seeping out through my feet with the tide. Bringing peace and tranquility to my soul.

    I love this poem, the words are so vivid and capture my imagine so clearly. Lovely writing!

  3. My highpoint’s gotta be the final lines Vonita…those words of exhortation to the Almighty, the Supreme Power and Force driving the sea and oceans; having made ’em so very bright and beautiful as with all other things in Heaven and on Earth! This is sheer beaut, quite simply! LOL
