Solace of the Sea



Solace of the Sea

Sea sounds bring solace.
Whispering waves ebb and flow.
Waters mirror a scenic serenity,
while salty breezes blow.


Sandpipers play relentless tag,
alternating the chase with escape.
Gentle whitecaps rise to greet them,
carving the outline of the cape.


Seagulls swoop and dive with an echoing cry,
floating white on the cornflower sky.
Troubles forgotten, we lie on the sand
and watch cotton ball clouds drifting by.




For those wondering, no, I am not currently at the beach. These photos are from a vacation a few years ago.

  1. Very beautiful poem, Connie. Larry and his grandkids have been at the ocean for the 4th. I've enjoyed their photos and your vacation photos from a few years ago are lovely too. Hope you all are doing well. xo

    My soul still thrives at the Jersey Shore, even though I'm landlocked in TX. Excellent poem

  4. Lovely post! I usually find the sea a little disturbing. Pretty sure this is left over from a couple of incidents in my childhood. I fear drowning.

    1. I'm sorry to hear this, Linda. I wouldn't like having a recurring fear like that one.

  12. Nice words that fit with the photos, Connie, even if you were not at the beach when writing them. The beach is one of Grenville's favorite places to go in warmer months.
