Embraced by the greatness of blue I welcome you

to possess me like a creature borne

in the depths of the unknown, I belong if I knew

how and when I was part of the beauty you shown-

Take my fears for I know you and to fear I cannot

in the freedom you offer and being known

that your fury can break worlds apart

but your songs by the shore sooth my soul

and when done all exhausted and old

I will follow the beats of your heart-


“Ocean, n. A body of water occupying about two-thirds of a world made for man — who has no gills.”― Ambrose Bierce, The Unabridged Devil’s Dictionary




Human ~ Nature


It hurts my ears, the constant noise

“but waves a soothing sound”

the get and go of every day

among the crowds

“when skies are full of clouds”

It hurts my eyes, the concrete wall

“while oceans go forever”

lights on screens, connected webs

as blindness spreads

“and stars so far and bright”

It hurts my heart that trees do fall

and mountains burn

that nature ends with our birth

“while birds will sing and trees will dance

for mother earth”
