Revisiting I am

by Jem Croucher

No 10 of 12 in the Jemverse series ‘Back to the sea’

I am restless
I sleep little, always moving I toss and turn
I rise up and fall down
I am often angry, losing my temper
I am taciturn and dangerous
I am deceitful and untrustworthy
I am lies and broken promises and disappointment

But…

I am also beautiful
I am sparkling in the sunshine
I am golden in the dawn’s still light
I am ethereal and whimsy and dreamlike
I am the words of poetry and prose
I am the emphasis of story
I am the syntax of verse
I am simply always
I am the sea.
