Waves On The Sea
Dawn has broken the thick darkness
To engender the shining morning sun;
I see, calm and nice is the blue sky
Birds of all wings flock and fly freely
Humans on the land breathe fresh air,
Watching birds’ traffic up in the sky.
Animals in the bush grazing at peace,
Bees being very busy making honey.
The sun’s fatigued and is now setting.
She’s missed; the weather’s disturbed.
Like Lucifer, the sea’s rebelling steadily;
Its waters’ color and size are altering.
Waters are involved in a mad blind dance,
Following strong and heavy winds’ music;
Culminating into huge passing mountains
To soon vanish and produce corrupt smell.
In jeopardy fishes and algae are, but birds enjoy.
My stomach regurgitates on seeing the carcasses,
Killing my sense of humanity, to destabilize me;
But soon, tempests will be gone to see the horizon.
