By the Sea

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .


No greater love have I,

than that for the sea.

The wind blows the waves about

and they shimmer and shine.

In all the seasons,

the sea beckons to me.

Peaceful and content I can be,

down by the seaside,

were the breezes,

blow a salty mist about.

Upon the rocks,

jutting from the sea,

I can imagine,

mermaids sitting in the sun.

Dolphins jump up high for joy,

splashing among the waves,

as they go rolling to shore.

Comes the sunset,

the sea turning golden,

until the purple twilight –

closes the curtain on the day.

By the light of the moon,

the sea now a silvery dream

and the waves softly whisper -

a lullaby to me.
