Seascape

If I do nothing else today
the one thing I will do
Is sit down on the beach a while
and watch the lovely view
For I will never tire of this
The sea, the sky, the sun
Particularly when like now
My working day is done

Encapsulating promise
when there’s no one else around
I love to sit here on my own
and listen to the sound
As waves upon this Southern shore
with tidal waters turn
and echo to the silence
I will never, ever spurn

Reflected blue of seascape
above as down below
I cannot think of anything
to better this I know
And here in beach hut heaven
I can watch it all day long
Just listening to the sweet refrain
The oceans’ happy song

At one

On the old oyster beds
as a tide at mid-ebb gurgles
and glints in the midday sun
Seagulls play and water shines

And across the way
this special moment grabs attention
and captured there I breathe it in
and am at one

High-five on a crystal morning

On the beach path this morning
the warmth of the sun
encouraged me as the
new day was begun
The sea was quite lovely
The breeze very slight
and the shine on the water
was exceptionally bright

So as I passed by my daughter
from the opposite way
we high-fived a greeting
as we passed just to say
that today was as lovely
as lovely can be
in this place where we live
right next to the sea

The seldom end of summer days

From the beach today I saw a ship
a long way out to sea
Out there in the channel
it was calling out to me
It bade me come and join it
as it steamed to warmer lands
But alas I sadly shook my head
as I stood there on the sands
With wistfulness I watched it go
waving as it sailed
As the sunlight caught the water
disappointment thinly veiled
But as I turned, as little grin
served as a reminder
that it would not be long until
another summer blinder
For then I will be here most days
beside the sea, my friend
From morning through late evening
on days that seldom end

Splashing

Tidal waters splashing
at the waters’ edge
on the old breakwater
such a privilege
Buried deep in shingle
but still within my reach
as the tide turns one more time
down here at the beach

Satisfied grin

Sparkling like diamonds
those beads of the sea
shine in the sunshine
and fascinate me
Sitting here on the shingle
as the tide washes in
I am caught in the moment
with a satisfied grin

Sea as temptress

Whisper slight you gentle things
silent on the shore
Tempt me with you movement
leave me wanting more
Shingle wet and shining
takes my breath again
Hypnotic here the beauty
how could I abstain?
