The Sea Knows

The Sea Knows


The wisdom in the Synergy of Energy

The clear azure and turquoise sea gives this moment a sense of calm

to blend in with the beautiful view and transform.

The sand on the beach implores you to walk slow 

To watch the wave as the cool winds blow.

To move with care, sensing the strength at bay

To see the precious gifts nature has strewn across your way...

In the sheer vastness of the sea , there is an expansive feeling

freeing us from thoughts that are limiting

In its magnitude of balance is the value of equanimity,

in its raging fervour is a lesson to never underestimate its conformity

As in its very languor of liquidity

is the strength of solidity.

The Sea stays in place knowing to play the game of tides well.

Yielding to the crests , flexing in the troughs and delve

Into its mysterious depths to bring forth natures bounties from within.

Sea shares with every wave a new hope to begin.

Just as the sand shifts its patterns with every wave from the sea

life too bestows an opportunity in every change we see

Going beyond its complacent cool blue exterior... let us value the giving

And care enough to sustain its every drop knowing, in it is a universe that is thriving 

As the sea reflects the sky above there is a lesson in clarity and humility

That conformity and acceptance is not a weakness, but the amazing grace of Almighty 

Watch the horizon expand there is so much to know and do

The choice is in your hand

To dream lazing along the shores

To dance and surf a midst the waves or 

To dare to dive right in with the trust of a wisdom untold .

The poem is beautiful beyond description and I love it @Savvy Raj
The below lines stood out for me and resonates with me :

Freeing us from thoughts that are limiting
Sea shares with every wave a new hope to begin.
Life too bestows an opportunity in every change we see
And care enough to sustain its every drop knowing, in it is a universe that is thriving
That conformity and acceptance is not a weakness, but the amazing grace of Almighty g

A big hug for giving us such beautiful poetry :)

@Savvy Raj - I have been cherishing this poem for a number of days. Each time, I have been enlightened metaphorically and literally by communing with the sea, even though it is far from my location right now. Ultimately this is the line that ignites me:

"And care enough to sustain its every drop knowing, in it is a universe that is thriving"

#11 Thank you @Dean Owen for your kind words..Happen to enjoy it too. It is wonderful to connect with our thoughts and express poetically as at times two lines in rhythm and rhyme can succinctly convey what would be a volume of prose.

I dare say this is exceptional (and believe it or not, I do love poetry, especially Sylvia Plath)

Thank you @Donna-Luisa Eversley for enjoying this post . Whatever brings on the clutter the Sea knows it all ....and have often sensed that simply sharing some time by the sea certainly settles the clutter.
