The Turbulent Sea - Poem by Thavaseelan Gopinathan

Legendary was the vessel, high sky standing was her repute.
Brawny was her strength, blonde highlights were her charms.
Amateur was her command, hardnosed were her sailors and
Turbulent was the Sea.

Fairness was her motto, litheness always was her veto.
Embarked on an uncharted Journey, amusing was the bonhomie
and still, Turbulent was the sea.

Too little was the juicy and sweet raspberry jelly,
Many a mouths vied for it, superfluous to her size, belly.
Color blue was the ‘see', wild and turbulent was the sea.

Mountain high was the tide, engulfed in it was the ride,
One drowned, an unacknowledged able seaman was he,
Some leaped over, alas! It's never too late to learn swimming.

The vessels repute saw no harm, for she sailed through the storm,
My prayers and wishes to thee, for the calmness while crossing the sea.
