Seven Shades

swimming
along a secluded shore of serenity
waves wrap their arms around me
whispering and spraying to my ears
the secrets of the ocean
mountains give me shelter yet
people my solitude
as seven shades of blue
rock me
with a sweet lullaby
a deep sea-saw sea-song
bringing me comfort
giving me life
feeding me sunshine
and filling me with joy

Poetry Potluck

    Giovanni…
    the secrets of the ocean
    mountains give me shelter yet
    people my solitude
    as seven shades of blue
    rock me
    with a sweet lullaby…

    This is wonderful. Makes me want to go to the ocean NOW and float in gentle waves. Well done.

    “Sea-saw sea-song” reminded me of the lapping of the ocean on the beach…NICE!

    melting yourself in the ocean is cool,
    you got me there with me,

    It does look a serene setting and your poem does it justice. I liked the “deep sea-saw sea-song” lullaby…
