Uncontrollable--By Beth Winchcombe--England

Uncontrollable

Why are we drawn
towards the ocean?
Liken to human beings,
it has life
energy   power       
moods

Gazing at the horizon
as far as the eye can see
a vast expanse of blue
peppered   twinkling
on a CALM day

Waves crashing
against the shore                    
consumed with ANGER

Neptune failed
when he attempted
to rule the waves

Just as human beings
the sea has a mind...
...of it's own

Beth Winchcombe is now a retired housewife and enjoys writing poetry, also painting in oils.  She lives in Derbyshire, England.

  7. Beth,
    A truly great piece! That ocean definitely has a mind of its own, so easy to get swept away in it.

  8. Dear Beth,

    Great personification of the ocean. It can be unpredictable with its ever changing tides or moods as you so aptly conveyed here, A pleasure to read.

    The ocean has many--a built in mind of its own, much like the changeable moods of human beings.
