I Love The Sea My Way - Poem by S.zaynub Kamoonpuri

I would've perhaps liked to swim in you O' sea
only if sharks and octopi didn't inhabit thee

Perhaps I would've swum and dived deeper in glee
if piranhas and sting rays couldn't attack me!

I would've gone far a' seafaring
with a daredevil like daring
if jellyfish in seas weren't thriving
I would've loved to go scuba-diving

But since at sea such dangers lurk
I shan't be shark chow in marine murk!

So I'm content with reading, watching aquatic seafaring tales
of olden ships, wrecked vessels, treasure troves and blue whales

But on a sandy beach I can sit all day
The sight of water so refreshing I must say

I've a feeling O' God you like water too
for most of the earth you covered in water true

So in the ebbing tide salt water I'm content just splashing my feet
A rare starfish, crabs and seaweed to meet

Perhaps if I'd been brave like my sister I would've braved the depths of the ocean
for she's scared of nothing, not bats or swordfish, except for 'roaches in flying motion.

    This is an excellent poem. In fact, it doesn't even need rhymes- -it would still be a fine poem without them.

    A great write.The sea and other imagery used in the poem have a deeper meaning.So many things we enjoy at a distance.The fear of danger keep us away from actual experience. (Report) Reply

    Totally enjoyed reading your poem, imagery was fantastic, I felt like I was feeling all of these emotions and not wanting to meet up with any of these sea creatures, like the sharks and piranha! Great gentle humor throughout also. Thank you for sharing this amusing and well composed poem. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    The sea with the rising billows, ravenous sharks and other monsters is scary....! But watching it sitting on the sea strand is such fun.... Enjoyed this humorous write! (Report) Reply
