The sea, it could be supposed, is made for poetry (or the other way around). The rhythm of waves lapping at the shore, of a boat rocking to and fro.


The drifting of free verse, the mooring of form. Add the epic nature of the ocean or the simple romantic essence of water, and the sea is just waiting for poetry to sail in.


The sails unfurl the cries ring in the air, the ship is on the waves of curls.Ship rides o’er seas of pearl while dragon rests in lair, the sails unfurl.
