I See An Ocean


I see an ocean, with ferocious waves
Big as a tornado, thunderous like a volcano
I see an ocean, carnivorous and loud
Killing people with a fright

I see an ocean, killing 2,000 people with all its might
People screaming in fear and terror
I see people running, jumping, and destroying things
I see an ocean, roaring higher, and growling louder

Hoping that they won't disappear
I see an ocean, calm and restless

Calm and collective
I see a person holding a flower praying to God
And his older brother, Todd
Hoping that he and his family won't get devoured
I see a monstrosity of waves, trying to stop

The destructive paths it has caused

Inspired by Water by Wendell Berry

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
