The sea

The sea moves

in its deepness,

swaying and flowing,

spraying and lowing,

moving and responding

to forces inside and out.


Deep and shallow are

its ways among the lands

on which it laps and crashes,

and it cares not for the coming

or the going of life

inside its great womb,

which it nurtures and destroys.


The sea works with the sky

to breathe and cry and

bring tears of living

upon the water and the land,

in rain, in storms,

in destruction,

and in calm.


The sea is the great constant

as all things change

and move and renew,

but it remains the restless beast

of living waves, storms and mystery.
