This would sound great read aloud by the ocean. It seems impossible to think of the ocean as quiet after this. Skillful alliteration seems to mimic sounds of waves themselves, especially toward end. I like the phrase "restless excess" that seems to suggest high tide or stormy seas.

I enjoyed reading your poem. Your choice of words fit very well to paint a picture of the beach with the broken shells and stormy waves. Thank you for sharing.

I like your alliteration, especially seaweed's sinuous slitherings.

lashing, thrashing, crashing (excellent descriptives that bring this scene to life.

Your free verse poem is rich in imagery and vocabulary, with an attractive presentation. Alliteration generally is a virtue in poetry, but you've proven it's possible to reveal too much virtue.

I like this. I love the visual you created with your words. I am a huge fan of the ocean and the shore; can look at it for hours on end. You have captured the essence of the shore beautifully. I normally only enjoy rhyming poetry (I'm unsophisticated) but this was terrific.

A very well-written free verse poem about a walk on the beach and finding evidence of a struggle between bird and winds with scattered feathers between the empty shells from the ocean.

Quite an exciting image of modern architecture and magic with this new perspective of the sea and borderline. I like how you embroiled the marine elements in our human perspective. Thank you for sharing and good luck with the contest.
