Sonnet for Waterkeepers

Sonnet for Waterkeepers sonnet poems

Through all the rank smells of the city’s shore
The ocean’s breath says ages of being.
Dark blue depths, salty finned life, and much more,
Shifting of arm hair aids my eyes seeing
My ancestors rising out of the vast
Mother’s womb desiring the growing life
Attacked by man’s careless drilling for the last
Fecund dinosaurs that held nature’s fief.
Fire and death exploded Ocean’s serene
Nurturing of fish and birds, air and land.
She hates the deadly coat that lies obscene
To kill her children by greed’s foreign hand.
Such sterile emptiness should never be,
Watchers are bound to guard the wounded sea.

The night that breeds dark clouds of rankling dolour Within azure sky of my mind’s great earth, Delusive affection of thine enlivened fervour, Of joy of life and lustre triggers dearth. Thou rememb’rest those fragrant ways trodden, Back i’th’ longest
