This next wordspark is short but sweet, to get your brains in gear.

Describe the sea in just ten words, for someone who has never seen it.

That’s it! You don’t have to write sentences – it could be a rhyming couplet, a string of adjectives, a piece of uber-flash fiction. It’s up to you! Be as inventive as you like.

You might even want to extend your piece and submit to the SeaMagic website.

Now, let’s see what you come up with!
