Thank you Jerry for the septcouplet!
I stood in awe at what I heard
the sea whispered to me
said my name told me to be still
I stood in the sand mesmerized
water curled gently around my toes
I waited straining to hear, eyes wide
who can it be
that's fooling me
I felt like I was turning numb
shifted my position, got a wave slap
shushing sounds,I was taken aback
saw no one nothing, just water
the waves were getting high and rougher
suddenly the ocean looked angry
then a deep whooshing voice said
"Don't you know how to be still"
I said "that's not fair, who are you"
"I'm the ocean and you are a fool"
I said "I've spent most of my life by the
ocean ,and it never spoke to me before"
I acted brave
wanted to cave
"well listen up,we in the oceanic
community are tired of being treated
like a garbage dump!
we will begin to get violent if it continues
this message must go to your leaders
and the rest of the country
my insides chilled
heart almost stilled
we are speaking to others all over the world
if we are not heard, our waters will cover you,
and put an end to the madness of humanity."
"wait, why tell me, I love the ocean
I never treat it badly,I don't understand,
what can I do?"
wondered why me
I love the sea
"tell your leaders, you happen to be in the right place at the right time, it has nothing to do with who you are, but what we need, If you think no one will listen, you are wrong. You are one of
thousands being told and all of your voices will
be heard,the rest is up to humanity"
could this be true
what can we do
" if your leaders don't take the right action,
you would be wise
to move to the highest mountains"
I told all the leaders told everybody, no one believed me,or any of the others who knew
we are moving to the mountains, farewell
if this were real
how would you feel

|Great pen Eileen
Love the educational bit of its message
but if the ocean spoke to me
it would be time for me
to lay on a couch
and let someone else sort it out......
Love & Peace

|Sounds like a plan to me. The signs are all around us. "Beachfront property in Arizona" may soon be a reality. Peter gave reference to Noah. There are warnings but is anyone listening? Fine write, Eileen...Lin|

maybe the waves are telling, maybe the seas do speak
but we are deaf to their language, whether it be thru choice
but you are correct....it is till to listen
i think you had a water spirt listening in your ear Eileen :)

|Hey! No freaking fair! You're one-uping me at my own game. Seriously, this was a fine rendition. You seized my thoughts immediately and kept on "dishing it out," until the end. You originated a germ for thought and you did it well.|

|You take a leaf out of Jerry's septcouplet form, isn't it amazing how this is catching on, you start a new trend, and it becomes a virus...lols
You deliver an apocalyptic warning that sadly Man is turning a deaf ear too Eileen, we only have to look at the lesson of Noah in the Bible, to see its predecessor !
That sea sure looks angry and convulsed in your picture

|I agree with Ed: it is very real, and you told it in a fascinating form. It read like an ancient tale.
|Reviewed by Mr. Ed
|if this were real
how would you feel
I think it is very real, Tiger Lily; but as you've sadly pointed out to me; it's probably already too late to avert world wide disaster since not nearly enough people listen to this message.
This makes me want to move to those mountains even faster.
