Floating on the rippling tide
The wind just pushes on
Sailing through the darkest night
And through the break of dawn

The ocean, as it rocks and waves
Sings a lullaby
As I watch the dolphins play
The seagulls softly cry

BJ this poem paints a picture that I'm just crazy about. I do love the sea myself so this poem makes twice as much sense then it would to most people, and thats the truth no joke.
Great work BJ and God Bless

I enjoyed the picture as much as the two last lines. I wonder what it would be like to watch dolphins playing in open water? Here in this poem and photo it reads totally relaxing.

What a great poem. Short, to the point, and extremely powerful. I can't say anything more. No complaints about anything. What freedom one feels on the sea. This poem made me remember that feeling... thanks.

Can I go too? :) Short, but potent. I feel the rocking of the water... OMG! and I just caught myself squinting into the sun on the water!! LOL!! I am sitting in my room in the shadows! You have clearly ignited my vivid imagination...

Soft beautiful imagery! This poem has placed me upon a ship. I journey, I see nature at its best and worst. Very descriptive and leaving the reader with a few questions of their own. This poem is well written and will capture the imagination of whom that reads.

I get a sense of the freedom one feels on the sea, along with the vulnerability that nature can impose on those that enjoy it. Really liked it.

I loved it! It reminded me on when I got to go see the dolphins. I love the imagery. Great job :)

Wonderful, beautiful, and nearly sad. Very calm and relaxing... thank you for sharing it. You say so much in such a short amount of lines... I really should learn from this! :-)

The writer who writes
more words than he needs
is breeding more work
for the reader who reads.

Yes my belief is,
the briefer the brief is,
the greater the sigh
of the reader's relief is
