The moon swoons the ocean
in a timeless dance
the ocean she sways
in this rhythmic romance

The moon he smiles brightly
a response she gave
showing her pleasure
cresting wave after wave

Just a guy who loves to write; poetry, lyrics, short stories and random thoughts… it is my passion. Photography is my second passion as I love to capture the world around me… to make time stop and to savor a subject forever.

    it’s cold and a bit dreary here….this looks outstanding to me! beautiful work, rog!

  • Thanks Michael. It is pretty dreary here today as well, raining and with quite a chill in the air. But they days of Summer will surley come and the ocean will splash with excitement as many will stand on it’s shore and marvel. The best to you Michael.
