To Be a Wave upon the Ocean or Sea

To be a Wave …

To be a wave upon the ocean or sea,

part of the eternal scheme of things,

to see distant shores –

in far away and foreign lands.


dancing with dolphins that jump up from the deep,

being one with the creatures beneath the waves –

living so wild and free.


To be a wave upon the ocean or sea,

simply living carefree,.

here today and gone tomorrow –

lapping upon a thousand beaches.


To be a part of the drama of violent storms,

as lighting strikes and waves crash,

until finally spent lazing against the shore,

of some private cove.


Never knowing what tomorrow will bring,

shining like a diamond under the sun –

steely gray under stormy skies above.


To see magical castles upon tall cliffs,

mysterious lighthouses on remote islands –

sending beams of hope far into the night.


To be a wave upon the ocean or sea,

always on the move,

a part of the secrets and many treasures,

that the deep holds in its grasp

and see the mighty ships go sailing by.


To be one with eternity,

as time goes flowing by,

the beauty of white-capped waves remains –


to be a wave upon the ocean or sea, part of the eternal rhyme.
