A Picturesque Seascape

As I gaze across the open sea,

Waves crashing to and fro

The sunset blazing across the sky

And seagulls flying low.


The ferocity of the raging storm

The angry, fiery sky.

The shingle withdrawing up the beach,

The spring tide rising high.


The wind was sweeping me away

Just like the crashing tide,

At peace beside the ravenous waves,

I longed there to reside.


Then struck me all at once the thought,

How beautiful it would be,

To capture this moment for ever and ever,

The wind, the tide and me.


A stroke of brush on paper,

The palette all aglow.

And soon I’d have forever,

The beauty that I know.
