Cool breezes tingle the skin,
but exude a certain warmth
being in nature's presence can bring.
Waves crashing against the bow are loud,
as they emit a peaceful silence.
The voyage towards the island is calm,
as the boat cruises further away.
I now know
what Langston Hughes felt at sea;
calm, cool breezes, serenity, rocking
back and forth, the gentle sway,
the aroma, and the peace the ocean conveys.
It's wonderful like a dream
to sail on the big sea.
