Blue Green Water, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Blue Green Water

The silent ocean of blue green water
Grabs my understanding of what is life
Thoughts of decades are about to alter
Certain to cause considerable strife

Unlike the cold blue water with its waves
Pounding, pounding viciously at the shore
Devouring countless people, now their graves
Many times heard it roaring at my door

The blue green water I wish to mimic
Rolling to the shore giving gentle calls
Even though there’ll be many a critic
Warning me of the hurricanes and squalls

True, yet the cold blue water they resist
Putting up barriers of every kind
While I would rather choose to coexist
At the open water and not confined
