The Unpredictable Sea
Pat St. Pierre

The sea, an angry huntress,
thrusts itself upon the sea rover.
Wild winds hamper massive sails.
The ocean’s white foam
thunderous waves
against the bluff.
The sea is fearless
and wants to be in control
but the mariner is relentless.
He struggles to assert his authority.
As he shouts to the heavens.
the mariner’s scream is carried away.
His body crumbles;
the ocean once more defeats man
and again assumes command.

  1. I really like that. I've spent much of the last week watching the RNLI practising rescues at sea. People forget how powerful it is and take it for granted. Excellent reminder.
