She is the ocean

… of seven seas construed.

How do we know the sea deeply;

this vast accompaniment to shore?

In truth ... never so completely;

by acquaintance, nothing more.

.

In her shallows, at water's edge,

where lapping waves decay,

her ripples sound a common pledge,

her splash has much to say.

.

At deeper depths, in rougher seas,

where waves compound their force,

fathom not her vagaries,

nor delve her inner source.

.

She is the ocean, of seven seas construed;

to her apply the notion of independent mood.

About the Creator

Tim Grace

A first impression has a lasting effect - it makes a notable difference. In a subtle way that’s who I am as a poet. A ‘first impression’ looking for the gentle ‘twist’ that draws attention to a novel observation.
