Ocean Secrets

Ocean Secrets


There are secrets only the ocean can tell
I close my eyes
And listen very carefully
They whisper
Shhh… Shhh… Shhh…

  3. I shall close my eyes and hold my tongue for a while, to enjoy the whispers...

    Love the structure of this piece, the way the last line invites us into the poem.
