I look to the noble sea’s
Tumultuous tribulation,
Grandest nature’s exaltation,
Watchers transformed there,
Transported in majestic air
Salty rare,
To a more peaceful time,
A clime
Inspiringly sublime...

For in peaceful power
Where seascapes live
A mesmerizing spirit does give
An interactive aura of creation,
Mother nature’s finest expression,
Magnificent vision of divine
Solution...

Unfolding in deeply stained forces
Imbue...
Seascapes, like a seven-course meal
Of delights spread before you,
Like a diner
Digesting a breathtaking view.

Every fiber of man
Absorbing the passion play
Played out every day,
Fills the senses,
Restores the knowing of what life
Is...
Bearing witness to the beginning
Of the world’s inception,
A deeply spiritual perception.

The sea creates serene knowledge
Providing a bridge...
Spanning the physical
Through the ethereal
To heaven’s essence spiritual...

Crisp salt air feeds the soul,
Enlightens burdens
Plaguing the whole.
With fragrance of ocean breeze
The cavorting sun,
Playing on white-capped seas,
Eternally pounding,
Relentlessly resounding,
In our minds,
In our hearts,
A daily revelation birthing
Utterly astounding...

Oh worship the mighty sea
With enthralling hearts,
With sheer ecstasy.
Refresh the inner being
With divine intimacy.

With salty spray
Caressing the face,
The mind can again embrace
The human race,
Strip all care from mankind’s base,
Slow the world...
Slow, and slower to a gentler pace.

The hypnotic sea a soul
Nourishes.
Within pounding breakers
Peace flourishes.
For abiding in the restless sea
Lies an eternal key,
A solemn solemnity,
An all powerful simplicity
That restores sanity...
If but for one shining moment
Bestowing a crowning achievement.

In salty, ebbing tides
Mysterious powers abide,
Shutting out a frustrating world,
Reducing helter skelter
Confusion unfurled.

Combined sun, sky and sea rapture,
Build a cascading here-ever-after.
Nature’s crescendo is astonishing,
Mind boggling,
A cacophony of sight and sound
No longer obscure,
In quietude demure...

Your soul the sea caresses,
Freeing stresses
That above mortal man tower,
Restoring vision of God-given
Power
Enfolded in God’s Celestial bower.

Worries that in our hearts abide
Are cast aside.
Like worn out clothes
In sweetest repose,
Naked of care
From all earthly despair.

White-caps in tides swelling
Come washing,
To hearts Brooding,
Troubles carrying
In mighty tribulations away
Out to sea flowing
So mortals can again be free,
Woesome worries banished by the sea
To far horizon, and beyond,
Drowned in the silver streaked pond.
