Watching the Sea....John Tee Sonnet

While sitting on the shore I watched the sea,
My heart was seeking the answers of life,
I saw the waves, cascading white horses
Released to run towards the pebbled shore
Each pushing further in towards the land
And washing sun-baked stones until they shone.
While sitting on the shore I watched the sea,
My heart was seeking the answers of life,
I felt the salty water wash my feet,
Then up over my knees and higher still
As it reached out to grab my very soul
And cleanse my being of all that is past
While sitting on the shore I watched the sea,
My heart was seeking the answers of life.
