After the storm

~{}~

There she is, the sea, deceitful in her silenced roar

As if nothing has happened on this beaten shore

she lays there,  her beauty never aging

while the wreckages of her raging

are covered up in sand

and floods  still drown the land

she kisses now with whispering smooth waves

How well she now behaves

deceitful in her silenced roar

the mistress of the beaten shore

her beauty never aging

A cold and evil whore

    I love that you have made the sea female in this poem.

    Although she will only behave in this fashion when she is scorned.

    If we treat her with the respect which she deserves the she will be soft and gentle with us.

    Mind you she can be a seductress who we would do well to treat with care.

    Terrific poem Ina

    David

    • Thank you 🙂

      Not too sure the sea cares much of how we treat her 😦 And many people got sick just trying to sail her lol.

      Hm, are we still talking about what is in fact an overload of water here…?

  2. You are right, Ina. The sea is definitively a female, with all its deepness, shapes and moods. A really interesting perspective of this theme!

  8. So many of you are writing about the sea. I’ve never seen it, but I know it through you all.

  9. WoW!

    The sea can indeed be fickle…this is why I prefer to keep my feet firmly planted on land.

    Nicely done!

  10. I like the concept of the sea being female too as well as her deceptive and moody nature. Nicely done!

  11. I love how the sea is personified as a feminine force. Great poem.

  12. hmm, like a woman scorned she is! most lovely
