Short Poems

1. Sunrise on the Sea
Golden rays of sunshine
Dancing on the waves
A new day on the ocean
As the ship begins to brave

2. A Sailor’s Dream
Sailing on the endless blue
With the breeze, calm and true
Feeling the wind in my hair
And losing myself without a care

3. The Lighthouse in the Storm
The storm rages on
Thunder and lightning, all night long
But the beam of light shines bright
Guiding sailors through the treacherous night

4. Memories of the Sea
Saltwater on my skin
The sound of seagulls, the feel of the wind
Memories of a life at sea
Forever a part of me

Medium Poems

1. “Siren’s Call”

Upon the restless seas I roam,
Sailing with no set course or home.
The wind and waves are my true guide,
Against which my ship doth oft collide.

But through the storm and tempest’s rage,
I hear a song, so pure and sage.
A siren’s call, tempting and fair,
Leading me on, to god knows where.

Her voice, like honey, in my ear,
Lures me on, I cannot steer.
Towards the rocks, I head full speed,
My fate, with her, is surely sealed.

So heed my warning, fellow seafarer,
Beware the siren’s call, so rare.
For if you dare to follow her tune,
Your ship and soul, she’ll surely consume.

2. “The Sea’s Embrace”

The sea, with all its endless space,
Is where I find my true embrace.
Its salty air, and rhythmic sway,
Is where I long to spend my days.

The sun shines bright, above my head,
The water, blue, where I do tread.
Beneath the surface, life abounds,
Fish, and coral, make their sounds.

The waves, they crash, upon the shore,
Their endless power, to adore.
Sand, and pebbles, as far as I see,
Beauty and wonder, surrounding me.

So here I stand, upon the beach,
My heart, with joy, it doth reach.
For in the sea’s embrace, I am free,
Alive, like never before, you see.

Long Poems

Sailing Dreams

The sea is vast and wide,
A canvas where ships glide.
The wind gently blows the sails,
Giving life to seafarers’ tales.

In their ships, tall and grand,
They explore the ocean’s expanse.
From the eastern sunrise to the west,
Adventurers search for the best.

Their journeys take them far,
Each one is like a star.
Guided by the ancient stars above,
They navigate with courage and love.

As they sail, they tell their tales,
Of great adventures in the gales.
Yarns of storms and waves so high,
Of victories, defeats and sighs.

Their ships are their homes,
Infinite seas they roam.
Through raindrops and thunderbolts,
They endure nature’s vibrant assaults.

Sometimes they find peace,
In tropical waters’ warm embrace.
They witness the beauty of the sunset,
And the gentle lapping of the waves they’ll never forget.

But there are times when the sea is fierce,
And the waves crash at their pierce.
They stand their ground and fight the tide,
With all their strength and pride.

For they’re made of sterner stuff,
And their hearts are bold and tough.
Sailing with masts high and proud,
They face everything – the world and its crowd.

And when the journey is done,
With memoirs and stories won,
They return to their home port,
Where their loved ones await their resort.

Their tall ships, tied to the dock,
In silent thanks the sailors talk.
For the voyage has been worth the strife,
The reward – a lifetime of sailing dreams for life.

A Voyage Across the Seas

Seven seas, I’ve sailed them all,
With yarns of sails and tales so tall.
The ocean vast, it calls to me,
Its beckoning whispers, a melody.

With wind that howls and waves that crash,
The ship sways and rocks, making a dash.
A captain’s hat and a heart so brave,
I sail across the blue, a venturesome wave.

The starry night, it shares its light,
The glimmering gold, a magnificent sight.
A lighthouse gleams, a beacon so bright,
Guiding my vessel, through the dark of night.

I’ve seen it all, in this journey of mine,
Wonders of the world, so rare and divine.
The dolphins dance, alongside the boat,
A harmony of movements, a rhythmic note.

The mermaids sing, a haunting tune,
A voice that lingers, like a midnight moon.
And in the distance, an iceberg peaks,
A frozen sculpture, that nature seeks.

Fierce storm clouds, they gather and loom,
The thunder’s roar, an impending doom.
The lightning strikes, a blazing light,
The ship battles on, through the darkest night.

A treasure chest, it holds my heart,
A compass, a map, and memories apart.
A sailor’s life, a journey so grand,
On the open sea, I’ve made my stand.

So, I’ll bide farewell, to the ocean’s call,
With yarns of sails and tales so tall.
The seven seas, they’ll always be,
Untamed, such beauty, for the world to see.
