Ocean waves cry out,
From the center of the sea:
With faith to reach land.

Woe Is the Sea

something grabs my leg

                          plastic bag churned by the tide

                                 ocean clings for life

Ocean Commotion

wind lifts salty air
scent of the sea fills my hair --
fishing without care

pelican dives fast
shrimp on the hook was my last --
strips the bait I cast

turn with quick motion
see crab stealing sun lotion --
ocean commotion

Into the blue

dark clouds evanesce
as eyes stare into the blue

Summer Rhythms

a waterfall flows
from mountainside to ocean -
distant reggae song

clear waters light sky -   
where blue meets turquoise vista 
a swallowtail hums

Fog On the Horizon

fog on the horizon -
the ocean immensity
hidden from view

fog on the horizon -
I anticipate her beauty
when she lifts the veil

fog on the horizon -
the soft prelude leading
to a sunrise suite
