looking East


looking East
all I see is the sea
I shut my eyes
but cannot close my ears
to the waves

Yes, being at the sea is all-pervasive, isn't it? I guess that's why I love it so much.

the seemingly endless sea. Wonderful.

I love the sensory aspects of your poem. I fall asleep every night to the sound of the sea. Okay, it's on a machine, but it will do.

Sandy said...

Oh, but the sound is so like a mantra, it is soothing.

I would like to fall asleep with the sound of sea but unortunately I can't. Thank tou these words and that photo I can better dream of it.

Becca said...
