Wild and Wonderful





Wild and wonderful and free

Is how the ocean looks to me.

Foam that flies across the road,

Wind and waves that toss their load

Of logs and seaweed on the land,

Leave them lying on the sand.


Imagine standing in those rollers,

Feel the power bowl you over.

No, no, no. I’m not that crazy.

Where’s my camera? I’ll be lazy.

It’s too chilly for such folly,

Best go home and deck with holly.

  1. This was a great collection of photographs which show the ocean’s ferocious power, Anneli. Your capturing the essence of the elemental force and drive was both serious yet your light hearted tone made it fun! 🙂

  2. Love the photos and the poem. There is definitely something about the power of the ocean, the pull of the tide and the way logs are tossed about like toothpicks. Beautiful post.
