The Ocean

POETRY FORMAT, 28 Feb 2022

Dr Usha Roopnarain – TRANSCEND Media Service

There is a timeless source leaving the shore.
Waves are crashing, fierce almost like a roar!
The deep blue sea cannot cover or conceal.
There are moments it tries to heal.
Sometimes there is calmness.
Sometimes there is darkness.
Maybe like a split personality?
Whooshing over the ancient rocks.
Through the crashing waves, it changes its form.
Sometimes calm, sometimes rough maybe in a breeze or storm.
This blue watery plain,
Can never speed in vain.
Does the ocean have secret caves?
Perhaps the ocean whispers to the waves.
Maybe words or solitary sprays.
The deep blue ocean changes its path in many ways.


Dr Usha Roopnarain – Former parliamentarian in the National Assembly of South Africa, social activist and passionate about human rights and gender equality.
