Treasure Island

Jacquie StewartHeimann


I Wonder


Vast, mysterious ocean
What secrets do you hold
An eight-legged octopus
Perhaps a pirate's trove

Around Atlantis hidden
Dancing in the sea
Brightly colored Clownfish swim
Amongst Anemone

Floating past a mermaid
Lying fast asleep
A dark, sleek submarine
Silent in the deep

A sunken Spanish galleon
Filled with gold doubloons
Swum about with toothy sharks
The wreck seaweed festoons

You sit in silent wonder
Waves lapping at your toes
The sun sinks down, the tide comes in
You stand and turn to go

    This is a well written poem of the many secrets upon the ocean floor...'the sea gave up its dead...' is a Biblical prophecy of when the true God will raise up our dead loved ones right here on the earth, to a restored Paradise. Thank you. Maybe you could enjoy some of mine like I enjoyed this one. Jeannie. (Report) Reply
