A-Z Challenge: O

O is for Ocean:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Ocean Beach at Five AM


The slap of morning
is a cold pool
I hunger
for the sweet sanctuary
of my dreams

On the beach
a multitude of seabirds
hallowed in purple haze
gather on the protruding rocks
guarding the tides

Suddenly
the eastern sky
awakens in a ball of fire
a heavenly host
communion

  1. Very nice poem, thank you for sharing.

    "I hunger for the sweet sanctuary
    of my dreams" I loved this part especially, reminds me of most mornings. (:
