The Sea

An incredible force of nature
Its many personas a wonder to behold
A playful clown, toying with those who come to splash and swim in its shallow water
A peaceful prophet, forecasting calm, clear passage for many a traveller
An unfathomable, mysterious spirit, keeping secrets in its hidden depths
A creative artist, producing a magnificent canvas of colour, texture and beauty
A nurturing provider, offering welcome sanctuary for creatures great and small and livelihoods to many
A raging maniac, with the potential to suck the life from those who dare to challenge its supreme authority
A hypnotic companion that holds your gaze and dares you to leave, knowing you’ll be compelled to return
To witness its dichotomous power to nurture and destroy

Authors Notes

In Polkerris, Cornwall, sat in a pub gazing at the sea.
