Faces of the Sea

Once upon a midnight blue
I sailed a sea of green
A more gorgeous sunrise
My eyes have never seen

Once upon a night so dark
The sea now ebony
And that perfect sunrise
Is just a memory

Written for dVerse poetry


  1. but cling to that memory because after the dark the sun always rises...smiles.

  2. I LOVE how this rocks like a ship's lullaby at sea, Linda!!


  3. Really gorgeous image and words! Lovely!

  4. Beautiful poem, Linda. Left me feeling a little nostalgic for something I didn't even experience...

  5. Brian- I always keep the good memories tucked away, and yes, the sun always comes up again.

    Meleah- Thank you!

    Jannie- Interesting take on this - I hadn't thought of it that way. Thanks.

    Linda- Thanks a bunch!

    Nicky- Thank you. Sorry for the nostalgia, but in a way you did experience it.

    Hilary- Thanks so much.

  6. Wow. I liked what Jannie said. I read aloud again and she's right. It does rock like a boat.

    I love it that you're writing more poetry. It's nice to see and read!

  7. Sara- As you know, I like the rhyming thing but I never thought of it "rocking" but I guess it does. The poetry really comes in handy when I need something for Wednesday posts. I am glad you are enjoying it.
