Silent waves

Rolling into shore

Past the golden hills

And into the valley

Away from the sea

The water goes

Into a lake

There it slows




Water that moves

and stills

and shines

Water that glistens

In the morning light

This is really good! I like how the verses are short and to the point :)

Don't waste your words on people who deserve silence. Sometimes the most powerful thing you can say is nothing at all.

This was beautiful. Amazing job!

"Never Give Up"

Very poetic. I can get a clear sense of what is going on. Maybe expand on it because what you have so far seems more like the beginning of a poem then a whole one.
