Ocean - Poem by Michelle Claus

Ocean
lashing the rocks
sculpting my savage coast
where vagrant seagulls loiter and perch …
Earth submits to you as a grain of sand,
and to your motion I cast
the cadence of my thoughts.

    You presented vast ocean on your palm so lucidly, I am mystified. Great! (Report) Reply

    Magnifique!
    You have captured the essence of the ocean with great imagery but above all this magnificent poem conveys the feeling, grandeur and mystery that the sea provokes. Now, thanks to you I can see and feel the sea again.and join the vagrant seagulls there.

    A true pearl of a poem, to be cherished (Report) Reply

    Indeed! While with the sea
    we learn to let her weave us (Report) Reply
