Sea by The Promenade

Sea by The Promenade short poem

Photo by sonica@2006

The incessant lapping of ripples,
Sounds of waves that swell and fade,
Mask all the murmurs and whispers
Of amblers on the moonlit promenade.

The hovering darkness of the night,
Ignored by the roaring sea outright,
Rising and falling to the moonlight,
Paints a vastly majestic sight.

Humbled by the marine dance,
I stand watching in an awestruck stance,
As the sea turns into a mellow masseuse;
For men like me, a gorgeous muse.
