Unpredictable Sea

The Unpredictable Sea

The sea, an angry huntress,

thrusts itself upon the sea rover.

Wild winds hamper massive sails.

The ocean’s white foam


thunderous waves


against the bluff.

The sea is fearless

and wants to be in control

but the mariner is relentless.

He struggles to assert his authority.

As he shouts to the heavens.

the mariner’s scream is carried away.

His body crumbles;

the ocean once more defeats man

and again assumes command.
