STORM AT SEA
This is burning life,
This blowing wind that whites the world
With foam and icy breath,
Tumbling the sea into a rumpled bed
Upon which ships of myth and legend sail.
Sail or sink
Beneath the green covers,
Lulling themselves to sleep
With the sound of mermaids singing.

The sea is an infinite source of inspiration! I have fallen in love with the exquisite imagery of this poem.🌹
Again, thank you so much for your comment. I wanted the reader to feel the coldness of the water
and to catch a glimpse of what lies under the fury.
