At no point in Nova Scotia are you more than 30 miles from the ocean.Luke

Fundy Tides

To those who live along and appreciate the Cobequid Bay.

Soft gentle winds
Blow over cool waters
Grasping mists of moisture
To drop on thirsty fields.

This cooling tidal breeze
Comes twice every day
In from majestic seas
Up through the Fundy bay.

Reddish swirling current
Pushes back the rivers flow
As bay of fundy tides
Makes the river grow

Water level rises
Over fifty feet
Fresh water pauses
Then hastily retreats

No match for natures wonder
The power of the tides
Whirlpools pulling under
Boats that dare the rides.

To breeze of no concern
As it floats over countryside
Relieving summers burn
Where shaded people hide.

Waiting for the comfort
Brought by cooling breeze
Thankful for the relief
Brought by natures seas.

Author's Comments:
"The incoming tide always brings a cool breeze from the ocean that you look forward to on a hot summers day. Another blessing from God we tend to take for granted."

Novia Scotia would be my place of abode, cause I love the ocean and find peace and quiet from being near it. Your poetry is so good and natural write and beautiful words to express your heartfelt thoughts.
