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.

    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

    Ring Ring Ring Ring! ! ! ! We have another winner folks!
    Another 10 from me my dear poetess. I have not done a lot of scuba diving but I can tell you you are missing a lot. I dove once off of Lanai (an island near Maui) to visit one of the scuba diving wonders of the world called The Cathedral as I recall. The Cathedral is a choral formation about 90 ft. down which looks a little like an eskimo's igloo. There is a door on the side where you enter and a hole in the ceiling you can exit from. But inside the light filters through cracks in the coral walls that give you the feeling of dark stained glass, like God could be present (and of course He is) . Maybe I should write a poem for you about it? But as beautiful as this was the most amazing part for me was the underwater surges or currents which would push you around like a toy,15 ft forward,15 ft back, so the swimming toward your goal (The Cathedral) was like this crazy rhythmic dance, better than any amusement park ride I have ever been on! What a trip! There are always negative sides as well that you never hear about (so I'm telling you) , like the time I was trying to get back on our dive boat after the seas had come up (it was calm when we started) . The ladder on the side of the boat was moving up and down 15 or 20 ft. and you had to grab ahold of it at the bottom of it's swing to get back on the boat. As soon as you grab ahold it shoots you out of the water like a rocket. I nearly threw up in my face mask on that one! Hey Lass, tell you sister roaches in flying motion are nothing. It is my favorite line in the poem however... Kudos! (Report) Reply
