A Girl is Looking Into the Sea

A girl is looking into the sea
Bearing sentiment of what the eyes see
The bluish, calm, melancholic depth
Has captured a heart and that I see

Within, touting fishes and corals graze
Of spots and curves and lines in maze
Of figured suits which mingle and tingle
Irrefutable miracle, how can't I amaze?

Sun-shined sky can't tranquilize stormy ocean
Rafferty hidden in heavily wooded mountain
On pure coast, in between, my feet now set
Against the heaviness I have to chasten

"Must I leave?" should be the question
Defeat the distance with imagination
Along the journey of a yearning heart
To see the sea again is its expectation
