The Sea 

#i

The soft waves wash those shores, 

Flying fishing birds, cry up in the skies

And dancing algae surfed the waters

All defining the exotic blues visible
#ii

But what do we know about the depths, 

What is beyond the sands of the beach? 

For when the sun shine, all glittered

But the waters danced softly, innocently
#iii

Behind the beaches strong trees grow

Crabs crawl quietly, their pincers in the air

From the depth of the huge sea they emerge, 

Casting shadows longer than what they seem
#iv

The crab, the wave, the sand and tropical sun

Gather to the banquet of the innocent sea

One puffs, one surfs and the rest lay about

But the sea is vast and wont talk of her secrets
