The ocean writes to me
A personal letter, it is almost like
Someone poured colored dye into the water.
Ocean breeze and fresh surroundings
To be a fairytale dream.
The ocean writes to me,
Telling me to watch
For the horizon sunset
Hiding away its glory.
The ocean mixed it up beyond a potion.
A sweet nursery rhyme
Taught things how to grind.
Juicy watermelon drips from Oceania's mouth of doubt.
Listen as we are so quiet and shameless,
As the oceans rushes its waves back and forth.
The ocean refuses to dry in land.
When all we see is the vibe
Making straightforward void of colorless voices
Run away like someone has escaped.
The ocean writes to me
A long six-paragraph in a note.
I think about its own life
Gliding into the rules of colorful voice.
The ocean writes its thoughts into a letter of understanding,
Pointing toward a map of drifting memories.
A lost breezy wind from the past
Makes you laugh.
The ocean blows a whisper in my ear.
Deep down inside of the botttom,
It is taking on a new life
As the ocean writes to me
In a sign language speech.
I love to watch the deep, beautiful ocean.
I take a snapshot of its own reality.
Oceania speaks to me through eyes
Of its personality.
