Take me to the Ocean

Waiting by the ocean

Waiting by the shore

Clouds are hanging, cloaking

Sunlight, grey and raw.

Beach lies glinting wetly

Tide breaks like a sigh

Pebbles crackling, crunching

‘Neath the slate tile sky

Winkles, whelks and starfish

Rays and sprays and gulls

Bladderwrack and mermaids purse

Crannies, nooks and pools.

Take me to the ocean

Take me to the shore

Where earth meets sea meets sky

I couldn’t ask for more.
