Ocean of Symbols

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Ocean Waves

Ocean Waves

Play me a song

Play me a song of the ocean

Let my senses tingle with watery symbols

Give me a sound

Something from the deep blue

Is that the ocean in a shell, listen, this sound is for you

Be tranquil with the rhythm of the ocean's wave

A splash on a rock is a rock band's fave

Listen as the water reseeds from the sand

Beautifully orchestrated for an eloquent band

Fishes splash, a sound of the water splitting and then a join

Listen as the stones skip on the water top, spinning like a coin

Such a subtle sound at nights, a violin of darkness.

Calm, relaxed and beautifully played

As the rhythm of the deep begins to sleep

Not a dweller insight, not even the water's maid

Playing all day, sending out a vibration of sound origin

To begin a new symbol tomorrow, as if it was in the beginning.

Play me a song

Play me one of the ocean's

Let my senses tingle with watery symbols

Please, play me the ocean.
