Dear Home Of The Fish

The sun reflecting on the ocean, shimmering 
like sawdust covering the land.
Our Sunburns, red and hot
while our toes dig in the sand.

Crystal mountains grew before our eyes
as they came crashing down on our heads.
Little fish swimming all around our feet,
while all the other ones fled.

Soft and gentle, little waves came
as the ocean twirled around me.
I couldn’t get enough, the sea
was like a deep blue and green.

The stars are shining, as the white
crabs crawl out of their tropical sand-dunes.
I can still see the ocean darker than
ever, looking like an animated cartoon.

The home of the fish, coral, and shells,
I will never forget how beautiful you are.
Cause I will never forget when we left
this ocean waving from our bright blue car.

The author's comments:

I was inspired to write this piece because it had been my first time going to the ocean. Although writing about the ocean may be stereotypical, I wanted to share my perspective and view on how the ocean looked to me. I hope people will realize that the ocean is just not a huge pool of creatures, but a safe home to animals, a beautiful landscape, and the ocean can bring peace to people.
