I am Seaweed-Jhardae

I am Seaweed

I am Seaweed waiting for
someone to pick me up and chuck me back in the water.

I am soft and squishy.

I swish with the water
and the water swishes with me.

I like the rocks lying in the sea by me.

I like being seaweed with fish and other creatures swimming around me.

I swish and sway with sea creatures living in me.
