Seaweed

Some is green and close to the shore
But there is more,
Deeper down,
Where it is several shades of brown.
In the Pacific and Atlantic,
Seaweed grows to be gigantic.
This mass has broken free,
And floats in the Sargasso Sea,
Where grumpy looking fish reside,
And other creatures like to hide.

Absolutely wonderful Josh!

(The crowd goes wild and chants WE WANT MORE.. WE WANT MORE!)

I do so love the imagery conjured by
"Where grumpy looking fish reside,
And other creatures like to hide."

Take a bow young man.

And, I hope you will continue posting more of your delightful poems here.

Amen to that, Kath! Josh really is getting exceptionally good at his craft.

I 'specially liked the 'fluid' evocation of the notional Sargasso Sea, where the sargassus flourishes eternal.

And amen, Josh, to Kath's hope of more to come.

No pressure though... honest...! We can wait...
