The Ascendancy of Poseidon by Kaan Yilmaz

Rising from waves of anger comes a storm,
Monstrous plates like the oppressor’s fists lash,
Thrashing his trident the sea’s soul turns brash.
Into an incubus he shall transform
When petty fear and alarm strike and swarm.
The outburst in the sky causing a crash,
Brought on by the barbaric winds that clash.
Hark! The waves and winds abruptly deform,
But panic dies down and sets the prey free.
The rolling waves when he chortled in scorn,
Once many a faint heart would turn to flee.
But a calmer, peaceful surface to adorn,
For the sovereign spirit of the sea,
Returns the tranquillity of the dawn.
