The Gift of the Ocean



Phoenix Roberts


Sometimes in life we need to slow down and remind ourselves to enjoy the great beauties around us. Phoenix has a deep passion for sea life and making a difference in this world. This poem hopefully inspires others to appreciate the world around us as it comes in many forms.

I am looking at dolphins swimming
the tie-dye blue sea,
and the sand blowing in the cold

I hear the waves pounding against the shore,
and the whales bellowing above the waves

I smell crisp, salty sea air,
and a strong aroma coming from
slimy, green seaweed

I feel the damp, cool morning dew on my face
and the warm sand in my toes
that is as soft as a pillow

I love when I spend time
near interesting sea creatures
It gives me inner peace
and makes me smile.
