What is a personification for the sea, or the waves that means it is quite loud?
Here are some ways you can personify the ocean.
You can personify the ocean as a god, like the Greek god of the seas Poseidon.
The sea was an angry god and gave my face a salty slap as his tides, his demanding presence, rose dramatically.
If you want it to be gentle and playful, try this:
The ocean was begging to dance with me as it rose to my feet, and I, its willing partner, followed it deeper into the sea.
I created these personifications myself. I am sure you can come up with plenty of others. I hope this helps!
