I just love to describe senses even though I might not be the best at it. I also loved the theme "Ocean" or "Sea" because it seems like such a broad and beautiful objective, so I tried to write a
poem based off of it.

I’ve always wondered

what it would be like

to sink deep into the

alluring azure sea

with my toes wiggling over the cold water

as I step foot into the ocean

soft yet rough brown sand

tingling my feet

as the salty sea

tries to take away the rough

by sending soft waves

onto my nervous ankles.


I dive into the darkness that beholds the sea

expecting to die

to choke on my last breath

as water and salt enter my lungs

but all I feel

as I look up at the surface of the sea,

where I once peered down from

where all I see now is sunlight creating little

circles and shapes and shadows,

is pure peace and happiness.


I close my eyes with a ghost of a smile

and embrace the ocean

as she hugs me with

her body of warm water

nostalgia envelopes my heart

as I remember my past life as

an angel of the sea.
