Waves of sound …

I sought solace of the sea

and in the sibilant surf

I heard the ocean’s song.

She sang of tempests and of stars,

of sextants and lost mariners ..

with threnodies of former years

she sang of dolphins and of whales

and of schooners under canvas sails ..

she left echoes of her voice in a shell upon the sand

with murmurings in melodies of sun-kissed isles.

I listen to those memories the sea returned to me;

I hold them in my heart and hand .. and smile ..
