Oft Forgotten Seas

This swell in my heart has me considering the sea
‘For as it is with the oft rough oceans
That calmness follows great depressions
Replaced by the beauty of royal blues or emerald greens
Standing in stark contrast to the dirty browns
That swirl during times of hurricane force
Like life (and the seas) we oft face times like these
Where mighty upheavals threaten to displace
The footholds to which we become accustomed
Frantically scrambling to reassume some measure
Of the balance better found in quiet places
Where no tide nor storm dare wake
Or disturb the imagined reds of rose or yellows of the sun
That too frequently paint the world in an impression
Even Monet could slightly hope to recreate
‘For it is in this desire of serenity that we take for granted
Such trials and tribulations as seen by the seas
Appreciating them only after the calming and waves recede

My name is Lance Thompson and I am the author behind L.R. Thompson Poetry and am interested in trying to start getting my poetry published.  I’ve been writing for about twelve years now and feel it’s time I try to put myself out there. I joined WordPress last month, my page is lrthompsonpoetry.wordpress.com
I’m a husband and father of three living in the Florida Panhandle and working at vacation resorts.
