Love Poem: The Tranquil Sea

The Tranquil Sea

I love to go to the tranquil sea
a special place with treasures for me

I walk the beach, feet touching the sand
feeling the waves tickle as I stand

I spot a beautiful blue starfish 
A sign of luck, I should make a wish

I want to grab it, but leave it be
Let it bring joy for others to see

As I walk away, I see it smile
I know saving its life was worthwhile

I look back, see it wink and now gone
I hope it has safely left, moved on

I realize the lesson today
To admire nature and walk away

Time to head back from the tranquil sea
Elated by what it gave to me
