Once I saw a frenzied sea
Waves rising from the very heart of its water
Rising just to fall again, to drown in the deep.
They galloped like horses to lash against the rocks
To pound upon the golden sandy shores,
Spitting spray of salt into the air
Full of potent cruelty foaming under the twirl.
This is also a sea ~ they call it Dead Sea
Filled with emerald green water up to the brim.
Not a single purring wave to be seen
But gleaming with ripples under the crimson sky
I viewed its subtle magnificence utterly mesmerized
As it’s heavy salinity slid through my fingers.
I wondered, this too is a sea! ~ but in guise.
