What is an Occasional Verse
An Occasional Verse is Poetry for the Everyday Poet. A website devoted to enabling poets easy access to publishing their occasional verse, poetry collections, poems, lyrics, odes, songs and sonnets. Starting with the ability to post their own work on and even going as far as starting your own poetry website.

We are still working to make An Occasional Verse easy to use but as you can now easily register and begin uploading your own poetry. The collections option is also now working. When you log in you will have the ability to Add a Collection. Then when you go to upload your Poems you can pick from your collections.

As of 04/21/2005 you can't search or list based on the Category but we are working on that also. We appreciate your patience while we make this the best poetry website available on the web.

We look forward to your comments and feedback.

A Silence - Viewed 5160 Times
David Devaney
April 21, 1999
Upon the sea there is a silence and a strength that is everlasting.
A purity and a joy that penetrates the universe with its glory
I have touched the sea with my life as it has touched me with its beauty
I have immersed myself in its constancy and its passion
Endless is the sea as it spans the world bringing enlightenment and truth
Never to be conquered
Never to be feared
Never to be alone in its pursuit of freedom
I have driven my feet deep into the sands upon its perimeter
there to be enveloped by the oceans of my being
There too, I touch the heavens and the universe
where the sea and the sky are joined
through the being that I am
I am the conduit, the link, and the connection between
the earth, the sea and the stars
I am the pillar that transmits the fire energy of love
throughout this universe
My life is my inspiration, my peace is my delight
and my love is the harmony uniting mankind
as he pursues the essence of his reality
I watch there upon the horizon as the sun sets
upon the beginning of my time
Never to disappear but merely to touch the universe
with its warmth and its joy
I am the sea. I am the earth. I am the sun
I am the universe commingled with the energy
of an eternity that is my own
