The Call of the Sea

Wordle 339

From sand, follow wind with urge memory saves
To shout ‘Outward bound!’
You miss the power and hunger of the waves —
Madness of boundless sound.

  1. Wow! What a great piece of writing, and with brevity. The boundless sound of the ocean is one of the reasons I love it so much.
