Earth, Moon & Ocean (V)

Swirling, white as foam, whoosh! swish!
Eddying, tossing and ebbing at every pull and push,
Of earth’s natural satellite, which around earth revolves,
So does the mighty ocean and her currents,
To moon’s gravitational pull respond as earth twirls,
Spinning, rotating on its own axis as the Great Deep swirls,
This same ‘Deep’ teems with many creatures,
Flying fish, octopus, saw-fish, plankton to name just a few,
Of these magnificent, abundant, lovely and resplendent,

[Hata Bildir]
