“An angry sea” #poem #poetry #verse

An angry sea ever prowls the world 
In search of new havens 
Again and again it circles the vast globe 
That spins through a universe without end 
Its great waves ever crash upon shores bleak With boulders of granite crowded 
The rapacious seas verily pound the wary beaches 
And probe vast caverns beneath the red cliffs hidden
As the great dragon prince of the oceans
Stirs the seas into a cauldron of froth 
While its fearsome tail whips and thrashes
The boiling green waters furious
Before departing on the next tide
All intent on destruction now forgot awhile
As a weariness temporary 
The fury in the beast does quieten
Until the moon magnetic
A merciless tempest in the firmament 
Amid a seismic turmoil 
A million miles beneath the brine 
Does stir anew the restlessness 
Deep within the soul of the great ocean
As it now heaves and rolls in great mountains unforgiving 
And drives its determined fingers merciless
Deep inlets and caves a many to investigate 
Until upon its way afresh it goes
For to course the edges of the continents 
To flow from pole to arctic pole and from east to west and back again 
On its perpetual quest relentless 
The world entire forever in its thrall to keep

  4. All is well thank you. I hope all is well with you. We get cold wet windy weather here a lot. There’s a joy to be had in braving the elements with a brisk walk or a slow jog then returning home to the warm and dry, that can only be truly enjoyed this time of year.
