Drifting clouds float
Over the ocean profound and blue
And the mocking cry of sea birds fill the air

Neath the waters dark and deep
Lie gloomy creatures, in the ocean somber and cold
And each and every one of them is death and destruction silent yet bold

Careless and free, the wonderful sea
Is two faced two sided and split between light and dark

When the winds of the west blow, it is called Farror, for he is the god of all wind.

less isn't always more

I would suggest that you expound on the ideas you express here in a little more detail. I'd also avoid chiched alliterations like dark and deep, it makes any well read reader think of poets far greater than those we find here at Lit. Robert Frost to be specific. This has potential just needs some sprucing up and a thesuarus could do wonders for you.

Just my two yen~

Beneath, surely? Unless you mean a place in South Wales :)

I have to agree with Bart on the dark and deep, though how dare he suggest anyone could be better than the stock at!
