Poetry Monday

sealedwithkiss72web.jpgIn honor of my upcoming Friday release Sealed with a Kiss, I did an Ocean themed poem. The hero’s name is Ocean and he’s the heroine’s kayaking instructor. And he has a seeeecret that relates to the ocean.

I tried to do a rhyming poem, but I think it came out very 5th grade class project. How do people do classy rhyming? I tried. Better next time.

Ocean

Upon the ocean
Salt and sun
Onward motion
Journey begun

One with the sea
Atop her waves
No guarantee
A watery grave

Slaves to the quest
For watery grace
We nurse at her breast
Craving and fearing her embrace

Longing for knowledge
About that which we cannot see
Willing to pledge
Our lives to her security

  1. heh. i always yank my hair out by the handfuls when a poem i’m writing demands that it rhyme. i’d much rather get tangled in free verse but them damn rhyming demons can be persistant and sneaky.

    love the entire concept of the poem and thought this was a great stanza:
    “Slaves to the quest
    For watery grace
    We nurse at her breast
    Craving and fearing her embrace”

  2. Do you ever notice that only the brave poets go for the rhyme? No holds barred, Lila! I loved this:
    “One with the sea
    Atop her waves”
    There’s a longing for oneness but the narrator is held at the surface.

  3. For me the ocean is really important, and everything you go in, it is a different experience!!
    I had fun reading an poem other than mine talking about water!!
