The sea came abruptly banging
On our door giving us an almighty fright!
When we did not answer
She unexpectedly let herself in,
Not quietly, as she belligerently
Knocked over anything in her way,
She, in fact, made quite a mess
To our un-nerving surprise.
This is not her normal behaviour,
She seems angry, lashing out
As a child would, not getting their own way.
Only, she is big and strong,
More like an overdeveloped teenager
Having an episode,
A strong young rugby player in a scrum
With their parents over school.
Whoever is in her way will feel her wrath.
And here she is, we are in her way.
I suspect the wind is behind her behaviour.
This piece is in response to Zach J. Watson’s prompt “Ocean”
Read Zach’s piece here
In the tradition of the never-ending poem, started by Martin Rushton,
I gracefully ask poetic Titans Kevin Keeney @Maria O. Nwokeocha LB Manasi Diwakar Robert Trakofler Rohini Singh to flex their poetic muscles and come up with a piece on “Tantrums”
Please forgive any repeat prescriptions. J.
