#NaNoPoMo 02: A Senryū In Honour Of Day-Two Frustration

NaNoPoMo: A Senryū In Honour Of Day-Two Frustration

I nearly used up all my "is" magnets. That would have been a disaster. This one was particularly difficult to write because most of the words I wanted don't exist in this magnet pack and I can't write angst using ocean-related words (of which there seems to be an abundance). I can only write ocean-related horror using ocean-related words.

And maybe pretty stuff but that's boring*.

*We'll see if I'm still saying that on day 20....

An abundance of ocean-related words, lol... This must be the nautical edition!

Well, um, in retrospect, technically there's only "sea" and "tide" ... but many of the others immediately make me think of the ocean: mist, water, breeze, blowing, pool, rock, bird, air, scent, ripple, wind, wake, wet, ....

I imagine that the brain of someone who grew up in a desert or on a snow-covered mountain might make other sorts of associations.

I forgot there's also ocean, wave, and float from my Halloween poem.

So yeah, Nautical Edition!
