The Sea Creature – Rihana Jenkinson

They say the ocean is a lonely place

We all marvel at the mysteries of the sea, and we are very appreciative of Rihana Jenkinson’s eloquent entry. Rihana is very passionate about poetry and was keen to support her project. Thank you for your fantastic poem!

The Sea Creature

She floated like a water lily

On the moon’s silver stream

Crystalizing all to be seen.

Enchanting is her smile

Bewitching us for miles.

Slimy seaweed withered as she passed

Nymphs danced in a sacred trance.

And a frightening wind blew across the sea

Thundering a storm for all to see.

Ships rose on the huge waves and came crashing down.

People from the shore heard her grieving.

A veil of happiness shone through her tears

As she searched across the ocean for a single song.

They say the ocean is a lonely place

But what song was she searching for through that wide wide sea.
