Rising Seas and Pronouns


What is it about pronouns? They are not case specific. Time destroyers.

When did you last learn about pronouns? When did you last argue about the seas?

Personal, demonstrative, relative, indefinite, interrogative, expletive, reflexive.

Are they words of pronouns or of seas?

I think both. Our order changes dependent upon our whims. The sea can be as personal as I, as demonstrative as this.  I claim the Atlantic Ocean as this sea I stand upon. It is rising, but have no fear. Whatever, another will take control, it is not for me to do, or you, someone else indefinite will bring back the old order after you or I are gone.

What? You asked me. Who? Whom? And as I said before, Whatever.

It is now, there you see, it will bring terror, but not to you or me.

Let us wait.

Be by ourselves. Or even myself will do. The seas are better left alone among themselves.

    Said like a sea captain with salt in his hair but knowing his lungs are flesh and will ever be laying humble in his chest. Wonderful, Thank you!

      As is your comment wonderful. Terrific imagination coupled with the words.

    I can’t imagine a rising pronoun moving Noah to build an ark. But the rising Atlantic is inspiring the powers that be in New York City to consider their shoreline. Pronouns you can use as you please. But not the Atlantic, or the Arctic, or even the Indian — which are not seas at all, but oceans. A vast difference.

    I like pronouns, they are short, to the point, generally replacing a noun so that you need not repeat the noun over and over in a sentence.. Of course there are personal, demonstrative, etc, kinds but all are needed in writing.
    How they pertain to rising seas escapes me. The movement of oceans are described by adjectives and an occasional adverb
    JHVN is correct to differentiate between seas and oceans. I like his “pun”description implying that oceans are vast but seas are not.

      Meant to be a seriously playful use of words on a arguably dire subject. Recent issue of National Geographic splits not the hairs of geezers, but referenced seas as oceans. I say seriously playful, as the pronouns are as pronounced in as much anonymity as the seas.
