Peaceful, Calming Seas

Poem By Emma Barrett

I sail above your mirrored depths -
the shades of jaded green;
Caverns stretching endlessly -
Tranquil and sub-marine.

Your skin that strokes the endless shores -
A call to come and play;
Of tides that rise, then drift away,
At different times each day.

A veil of sea-spray whips the bow
and trips upon the water,
on gentle swell, through glassy waves
that sighs with salt aroma.

Let me drift upon your depths,
Gently rocked to ease.
In silent, blue that meets the sky
On peaceful, calming seas.

Comments about Peaceful, Calming Seas

I think we're looking at really lovely metaphors here. But what do I know? And why aren't you writing more?
I really enjoyed that, it was a beautiful analogy. Esra Sloblock

North Wind

I wish I could be lifted up
and away with the winds;
Above the world;
above its woes -


Nothing but the ticking of the clock,
the non-stop,
the irremovable blot;
the ceaseless movement forward into

All The World's A Stage...

Twisted with guilt;
bleeding more than dry lips-
I’m up to the hilt
In this.


Flowing, moving, rushing, running through our veins;
the breeze that uplifts the leaves is gone, again.
The force that spurs the moon, to work the tides,
to move the mighty seas.
