A Prayer To The Sea

Let them come,

Let them come, them waves,

To the sunsets of gold and copper,

To the isles

And the bay.

Let them roll,

Let them roll onto each other,

Through kelp, shells and coral,

In shimmering eyes

Caught by surprise.

I am a drop, I am the ocean,

What I see is You,

Dispersed in all of it,

In all that is…

I am a drop, I am the ocean,

I thank You for this privilege,

The privilege of the human gaze.

I thank You for the sea,

Depiction of your grace.

No matter the gale, no matter the heat,

I shall see unity,

I shall see

It.
