Ocean – A Poem

One of my students (Shin) lent me a book with Japanese poems so it inspired me to write more poems! Here’s one I wrote today:

Ocean

You’ve been here before,
Felt the sting of its depths;
It swallowed you whole,
Left your soul in debt.

Yet, here you are
Facing the ocean again – demur!
A terrible thrill,
Eyes wide open if lured.

So stand back from this ocean
That can swallow you whole;
Catch every droplet
For the sake of your soul.
