Haiku, Poetry by Sarah


wrestling knots; brushing;
I glide the straightener through.
No waves here today!

Free Verse, Poetry by Sarah

Keep Your Eye On The Sea

When walking along the beach

Don’t get lost in a reverie

Take it from my experience

And keep your eye on the sea!


Don’t ponder things big and small

Or how beautiful life be

Trust me friend, listen when I say

Keep your eye on the sea!


The ocean’s ever creeping

As sneaky as can be,

So please! Believe me!

Keep your eye on the sea!


That wave may look quite harmless

And far away it may be

But don’t risk it! Don’t get too close!

Keep your eye on the sea!


Because just when you think you’re safe

Thinking, ‘Ha! It won’t get me’

Bam! It’s gone and drenched you!

That bloody bugger, the sea!


So if you value your runners

Or some other expensive accessory

Do yourself a favour,
