Reclaimed

I wrote this for World Ocean day and I wondered what the Ocean thought about what had been done to it.


it thundered and it poured

and with one giant snore

the ocean beast awoke

and over poured

the shore

reclaiming land

that once been taken

from within its grasp

the beast roared and laughed

‘what is mine is mine at last’

as the ocean seas frothed and foamed

its glee

taken back what once it owned

before returning

to its watery home
