This is a poem to you, Oh Sea.
it is not the first and I pray it's not the last
To your water, as thick and powerful as thought
To your waves, reaching for individuality,
reaching for Identity, stretching to become
something more than only sea, they say
we will be more than sea,
we will be more powerful and more than sea,
as they're crashing, and learning, and fading back into you
with nothing gained by striving...
This is a poem to you Oh Sea, when you are clear
and when you are stirred, iridescent and still
A poem to your angry hurricanes
which sweep the shores, and clear new paths,
reminding us of our emotions, and impermanence
This is to your serenity
mirroring the moon, the stars, the sun
This is to thank you for all that you give
and all that you take, all you've reflected,
destroyed or forsaken
all that you've taught, and the songs that you sing
This is to you and your children.
You are everything we leave behind
and everything we must return to...
