Watching the Ocean

New poem by Glen, finished this morning!

Watching the Ocean

I’ve been watching the ocean,

the waves crash, like the thoughts in my mind.

My mind is like the water, they sometimes rush and crash,

against the goldenĀ sand on the beach.

But sometimes they are so quiet and serene that you can see the sky itself,

reflected in my mind.

A mirror for the sky, and for the world beneath it.

Mind mind holds an entire ocean within,

hidden but so alive, and deep like the Pacific.

The ocean in me brims with ideas, bubbling to the surface like foam on the salt water.
