The Sea, an original poem

Blue skies stretch forever

Shimmering oceans so innocent

Nothing but a summer calm

The sun above, luminescent

But wait! Darkness looms ahead

Bubbles churn and storm clouds rained

Black waters rise and rant

The sea, so restless, rules untamed

Roaring, raging, it reaches for the coast

Waves heighten, almost crashing

Boom! Day plunges into night

Sea clawing at the land in lashings

Menacing waves taunt sailors

Their appetite aflame

As water thunders into houses

The sea, so wild, rules untamed

I know what you went thru building that very nice and well rhymed poem.

To rhyme is difficult. Especially to do it and keep the rythm and timing entertaining.

Ya did well...don't stop writing!

Thanks for becoming a "follower."

I've written a few.

This one is long and difficult.

Try it and tell me what ya think.
