A different kind of Sea

Riding on a sea of dreams,
reality ready to burst, at its seams.
Bending the world to our minds,
discovering new places, species, and kinds.

Riding on a sea of waves,
a seagull that screeches, squawks, and raves.
Dolphins that together jump and play,
While whales moan and groan all the long day.

Riding on a sea of sand,
dividing the world between water and land.
Creatures scuttering 'cross the small white grains,
while sea lions bask with their non-existent manes.

Riding on a sea of clouds,
the wind whipping, roaring, and loud.
Up above with all so small,
the sun shining days last call.

Riding on a sea of words,
the surrounding world gone, just blurred.
Then new ones brought to life surround,
where imagination can leap and bound.

Riding on a sea of sleep,
my mind to fall and sink to the deep.
My eyes fluttering ready to rest,
and heart to join in nights endless fest.

Author's age when written

Just a poem I wrote while on the plane back from California and a lot of it was inspired by the time I spent on Coronado beach and on a whale watching tour.
