Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka #Poetry Challenge #17 – “Storm & Color”

untitled

My Tanka for Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday Challenge this week has been inspired by a shared video I saw on a friend’s Facebook page, showing how the sea can be a bit rough and choppy one minute, and so dangerous the next.

This video shared on the Redcar RNLI Facebook Page really shows how powerful and scary the sea can be… An ordinary day can quickly turn into a very frightening day !


What’s even more apparent is this could happen to anyone. It really is terrifying, isn’t it? 

The sea can pick you off your feet and carry you away in its pocket of ruthless waves. 

I love the sea but have always been respectful of its power too. The sea is not to be trifled with, we truly are at its mercy.
