Ocean Day

Atlantic BeachOne of the greatest gifts a grandfather can receive is the realization that his grandchildren are maturing into fantastic human beings. On Christmas eve my Dana gave me a piece of her work. I hadn’t realized that she is a poet. Fourteen year olds are not usually  very poetic. To my amazement, she is; she is also athletic, musical, and a brain. I’m not too proud.

Let me share the gift she gave me:

Ocean Day

With the pale light of dawn

The waters seem mystically drawn

Sunrise sending peach light

Waking from the black night

Foam tickling the shoreline

With the sweet smell of brine

Patiently waiting for the sky

To open with a silent sigh

Sun’s rays begin to reach

Warming sands of the beach

Waves caress the shore more eagerly

Crashing with puzzling glee

Rhythmic pattern spellbinding

Beauty absolutely blinding

Every sound a pure note

Sharing a hushed anecdote

Endless blue, from aqua to indigo

Below an eternal sky’s glow

Dreamer’s delight

Of magical flight

A whole new world

A different view unfurled

Day to twilight

Unexplainable sight

Sunset painting

Color draining

Moon, pearly white

Stars shining bright

Another day gone

Just to open up to another dawn.

Dana, I love you!

    And the waves “sharing a hushed anecdote”.
    Hey, that is such a neat poem and you have every right to feel proud. My fourteen year old also sometimes likes to play with words in poetry. I will show this to her.
