When the sun meets the horizon

And the breeze is warm,

The ochre hue splashed across,

Warns of an unsettled calm.

The glassy sea hides in its womb

Seeds of calamity and harm.


The cacophony of the birds above

Indicates a restlessness

The eye cannot perceive

Nature chafing at its harness

The innards start rolling

But the surface reflects calmness.


Suddenly it loses all control

Wave after wave and another

The sea’s fury is eventually


It is partial to none as it rumbles louder

Relentless in its pursuit of prey

To avenge wrongs wrought forever.


On and on it crashed and shattered

The wounds inflicted unabated

Humanity stood battered

Shorn of all it possessed

Beaten and thoroughly defeated

Faith irredeemably tattered.


The predator was now preyed upon

In the justice of order

Men stood bereft of all possession

Clutching each other

The sea returned unrepentant

Finally it had restored order.
