I Love The Sea My Way - Poem by s.zaynab kamoonpuri

I would've perhaps liked to swim in you O' sea
only if sharks and octopi didn't inhabit thee

Perhaps I would've swum and dived deeper in glee
if piranhas and sting rays couldn't attack me!

I would've gone far a' seafaring
with a daredevil like daring
if jellyfish in seas weren't thriving
I would've loved to go scuba-diving

But since at sea such dangers lurk
I shan't be shark chow in marine murk!

So I'm content with reading, watching aquatic seafaring tales
of olden ships, wrecked vessels, treasure troves and blue whales

But on a sandy beach I can sit all day
The sight of water so refreshing I must say

I've a feeling O' God you like water too
for most of the earth you covered in water true

So in the ebbing tide salt water I'm content just splashing my feet
A rare starfish, crabs and seaweed to meet

Perhaps if I'd been brave like my sister I would've braved the depths of the ocean
for she's scared of nothing, not bats or swordfish, except for 'roaches in flying motion.

    You have cautious, commonsense thoughts about the sea, which can be a very dangerous place.
    Yet in contemplating the waves from the beach it can make you think about God. Better than
    venturing into the water. I like this poem.

    But on a sandy beach I can sit all day
    The sight of water so refreshing I must say
    I've a feeling O' God you like water too
    for most of the earth you covered in water true....just fine........that is my complement to this poem.. your wishes and finally your conclusion of being in peace, reading and comforting your feet in the shallowy waters of the sea shore. there is in peace in your poem. tony

    A delightful, light-hearted reflection on the ocean and all those inhabitants that give us pause. I love the imagery, and the pace matches the fun of the piece nicely. Well done, good poet! (Report)Reply

    This is an excellent poem. In fact, it doesn't even need rhymes- -it would still be a fine poem without them.
    Nicely done.
