Along the sandy shore

of Florida beaches,

fragments of rocky pebbles

wash against its shoreline.

Smiling faces, and

the laughter of children

calm and subdue

the rushing waves.

Remnants of seashells

drift along its seashore

while warm hearts

bask in the sun.



The Lost at Sea

The Lost at Sea

At the sea lost-

gushing winds howled

from the treacherous waves.

Sails forced to change its course-

fought against the raging sea.

Already gripped with fear-

those aboard the seafaring ship

boisterous waves threatened to overtake.

Fighting against the ravaging sea ghosts

seeking to claim their souls-

turbulent waves begin to cease

calmly surrendering them to safe.
