Sad ocean, verged against
this faded sky, you breathe
a quiet reproach of clouds.

The vast night shivers,
bone cold, deep, and
blue as the universe’s ghost.

    Beautiful, tight, vivid poetry!

  5. Investing the natural world with emotion and soul, and beautifully. The second stanza makes an exceptionally strong finish.

  6. A momentary feeling
    A glimpse at the compendium
    Of a man's sweep
    Blessed with the ability
    To catch the changes

  7. I like the way how you put in context the ocean and the sky : "Sad ocean, verged against
    this faded sky..." Beautiful shot
