The Ocean Speaks

Moonlight kisses the ocean waves
Stars dancing like drowning knaves
Ethereal swirls of Neptune's might
Makes me in awe of the cosmic light

Buoys that sway to a beating drum
Seashells ricochet along the Earth's crust
Trust that Amphitrite's lust will be precise
Sacrificing their souls to a better place

Lonely drifting vessel searching for a mate
Too late now for the omnipresent driftwood
Demons of the Deep reap the innocent
The Brotherhood of the Sea never spent .

Beautiful, this is very vivid, and reached my senses. I love poems that have to do with the ocean!

I love this one! I can feel the night and the ocean around me...there is a certain rhythm to it..."Buoys that sway to a beating drum"...gorgeous!

Zoya Zaidi
Sea has many moods engaging,
Somtimes calm and sometimes raging,
Sometimes as serene as can be,
Sometimes thundering like a devil be,
Flashing Neptunes brand up and down, dancing in a frezied, feverish glee!!!!

She has many moods, dear me!

Very inspired and full of allusions write!
Perfect rhyme and rhythm too!!!


xxx, Zoya
