From a kernel to an ocean

Abrupt was the demise of one cycle

he did fight, yell ,struggle and tackle

the storm was overpowering

the ocean overwhelming


Choking and spitting the oh-so-salty water

His thoughts and visions madly did wander

From a kernel of an existance from the past

seemed like an era so long ago, and lost


Just when the mighty ocean smirked over its win

The fruition of not giving in thus begins

He wields for life and love, and all he could lose

For his own fate, now, he did chose

    You can certainly feel the urgency in this one.

    (I went to 3WW and put my cursor over the 3WW log and right-clicked my mouse and it brings up the list that includes “save as…”)

    a beautiful piece of work capturing the struggle.. the ocean puts life into perspective when your out there…. tho cannot help remembering a scene in the movie forrest gump when their out on the ocean in their shrimp boat and everybody else shipwrecked but they brought in a haul.. the capt had lost both his legs in the war and was miserable, but when he faced death in the storm he soon wanted to live… bird on a wire
