Turquoise Blue of the Ocean




Ships sailed in the distance

Over the apparently calm surface of the ocean

As we sat on the beach watching them.


To the pinkish blue cotton candy sky

Telling us tales of the day.

We hardly exchanged a word.

The silence was enough.

It was too powerful.

We gave in to its melody to control us

And the moment.

Occasionally I threw a bite of sandwich to the seagulls.

I know our souls must have been the color of the ocean

-turquoise blue.

For we were just

As serene and sublime

With the silence making poetry between us.

We were lost in an eternity of blissful silence.

I could not have wished

For anything else but for this

To last forever.

Or maybe it was forever.
