A Poem a Day

During the year 2015 I have chosen to take on a challenge to write a poem everyday. I will try to put them all here everyday.


295. October 22nd

Wavy black hair matted with sea-weed,

The salty water swims into his lungs.

Fighting for breath; shaken by throes of coughing,

The pressure of water squeezes out all air.


Tossed against the rocks like a pebble,

Cracking his skull as if it were a shell.

His oxygen-starved blood stains the water,

A corpse beaten by this ocean.


Through his mouth is closed and heart still,

His eyes remain open in terror.

Searching still for a saving miracle,

Yet he is beyond the help of this earth.
