Come, Meet Me On The Ocean

For those in need of something simple, and pure…

Come, meet me on the ocean
We’ll sail away, we two
Meet me on the ocean,
We’ll sail off, for the blue

We’ll chart a course for nowhere
And take in all the sights
Through a thousand storm-tossed days,
A hundred doldrum nights

Swim in crystal waters,
Diving in the deep
Find a shady beach spot
To curl up for a sleep

Mackerel skies and lullabies,
Bobbing on the tide
I want to spend eternity
Lying at your side

So, come meet me on the ocean
We’ll sail away, we two
Come meet me on the ocean
We’ll sail off, me and you

  2. Hi, mackerel skies was a winner.

    Would you be interested in this (maybe again):

    We have 140 contributions to date, and I am trying again to rope in as many contributors to the Poets for Peace challenge (in place until this the end of August). The many voices in response to this have been fantastic, and I’d love you to add yours (again, if applicable) if you can. Feel free to use an existing piece of writing or a new one asking for peace and/or about the troubled times in which we live.

    If you are interested, please leave your poem in the comments section of Neha’s blog and it will be added.

    Thank you –
    Your voice matters.

    ‘We are so grateful to be part of this community where poets and creative minds from around the world stand together uniting for PEACE! This collaboration is open till August 31st and we hope to see more of you join in!’
    – Neha
