Favorite Quote:
"Where ocean breezes storm the soul,
Where the love of strife grows quickly old,
Where the touch of God is beheld in power,
Where the spirit finds rest in its darkest hour."
The book "Rooms"

The ocean’s waves washed up on shore,
Whirling sand in little pools more and more
Building, building; rising up
Waters you cannot trust.

Ocean being like a sneaking tiger
Hiding in the brushes until you’re useless to fight her
Building, building, will not stop;
Waters you cannot trust.

Powerful currents rushing through
Nothing at all looking as it used to
Rising, coming, building up;
Waters you cannot trust.

Slowing, stopping, but not for long
Waiting until again they’re strong
Still, still; coming soon
Waters you cannot trust

Silent and quiet throughout the town
The destruction zone is all around
Calm, calm; for them, once is never enough;
Waters you cannot trust.

I love it, great use of imagery, simile, and personification! (: It really shows a different perspective on the ocean; instead of making it seem peaceful, and beautiful, you reveal the other side of it, the side which cannot be "trusted". I like how you described the ocean as a "sneaking tiger hiding iin the brushes until you're useless to fight her."

OH and

-"Hiding in the brushes.." I believe you meant to spell bushes, instead of brushes, right?


Well anyways, nice poem! :) I likey.
