Supposing boats could swim and fish could sail—pertaining purpose would still prevail
starfish fall from the sky, twinkling planets up high, under ocean beds would lie
tides and currents would be still, skies above strident storms may generate at will
sharks in playful schools through waves spiral--dive, dolphins lone predators-contrive--deprive 
miniature colourful whales in playful schools, bloated rainbow spectrum aqua-species-- singular jewels
shorelines becoming distant perspectives of orange and blue
horizons washing through loamy sand, battered shells accrue


an overture, not odd-- merely Oceans opposing allure

    Thanks Richard-- your feedback and encouragement mean a lot. Yip-- I made it all back to-front for awhile.. I think I was bored with format/flowing oceans and sea-- so very tongue in cheek.
