Photo Challenge: Oceans March 26, 2011

Posted by nrhatch in Art & Photography, Nature, Travel & Leisure.

Kayaks Capsizing

Under Frothy Waves

Surfers Soaring

Above Watery Graves

Parasails Swirling

Born on Sea Breezes

Beachgoers Laughing

As Time Freezes

The Ocean . . . 

Does as it Pleases

I wonder if seasick can be used to mean sick FOR the sea?
Oh, I miss it today, Nancy. beautiful poem.

nrhatch - March 26, 2011

Thanks, Kate.

I grow homesick for the sea when I cannot hear its heartbeat.

3. Cindy - March 26, 2011

Love the poem, so longing for the ocean …

nrhatch - March 26, 2011

Something special about being seaside . . . unless, like Carl, you get seasick. 🙂

No thanks. I have to take motion sickness pill to go into the bathtub.

nrhatch - March 26, 2011

Miami is wasted on you. 😛

5. Carol Ann Hoel - March 26, 2011

I like the poem, Nancy. It’s a very pleasant read. I really like your last lines:

The ocean
Does as it pleases

We’ve seen the ocean misbehave.

I miss relaxing on the beach watching all those activities in your verse and the ocean with sunbeams dancing on its waves.

nrhatch - March 26, 2011

Thanks, Carol Ann. Glad you enjoyed. I am at my happiest when close to the sea.

I love your poem! 😎
The ocean always me feel so alive, I could watch it for hours.

nrhatch - March 26, 2011

Thanks, Barb. Me too.

Our first time to Acadia National Park (in Maine) we sat on the rocks above the sea for hours doing nothing but watching the waves pound against the shore.

Mesmerizing . . .

Lovely poem, Nancy. It catces the mood beautifully as does the photo. Love the peaceful sea…

nrhatch - March 27, 2011

Thanks, adee. I enjoy wild crashing thundrous waves too . . . but not tsunamis.

8. Tilly Bud - March 27, 2011

Love that last line.

nrhatch - March 27, 2011

Me too. I kept changing the ending until that last line arrived. I nodded.

9. eof737 - March 27, 2011

Love those roiling waves teasing that kayaker… 🙂

nrhatch - March 27, 2011

I want to kayak on the Gulf of Mexico, and ride up and over the undulating waves.

10. gospelwriter - March 27, 2011

Lovely image and lines, ocean tying all together while doing exactly as it pleases – yeah, love the final lines

nrhatch - March 27, 2011

Thanks, Ruth. I’m glad I stuck with it until that last line appeared in view.
