What I love about the ocean 

is her wildness

No man can tame her

She has her rhythms -

The waves pushing and pulling at the shore

The tides marking time with an ancient pulse

The deep currents flowing in determined arcs

to the spin of the planet


What I love about the ocean

is her wildness

No man can tame her

She has her softness -

The invitation to sink within her silky depths

To discover the wonders below, newly imagined

To arise transformed, eternally reshaped 

fragile alchemical form


What I love about the ocean

is her wildness

No man can tame her

She has her might -

Quietly eroding the shore 

caressing it away one delicate grain of sand at a time

Or ripping it asunder in one 

cataclysmic crescendo of movement

She expands and spills 

into - over - out

Washing away what was once solid and known

leaving new, unfamiliar landscape


What I love about the ocean

is her wildness

No man can tame her

She is free - 

Fully sovereign

her ancient command undeniable 

And I submit,

her faithful servant

Bringing forth what she offers

Her sea salt blood in my veins
