Tsunami by Holly Atherton (Highly Commended)

The earth shuddered in the ink black darkness
from this small disturbance,
The Titan rose
flexing his muscles
raging from sleep.
A colossus from the depths
driving his fury to the land
with lethal intent.

At that moment the sea sparkled
bathers revelled in its beauty.
Through caressing waves
tiny silver fish darted
in a pattern of azure light
tickling the small feet
of those who
loved its beauty.
Unaware, as yet,
of its power.
