Ocean Sit

The quiet ocean
surface calm
nary a ripple

Squalls come
upsetting everything
Calm
restores itself
without assistance

Mother ocean
giving and taking life
faithful
only to the moon
cycle

I pray to you
great body
reflecting light
absorbing color and sound
mirror to sky

Buoyant
or sinking
you take me in
without question

I sit
or float
mind as wide
as your horizon
and bow
down

I am becoming ocean too
and moon
and song
night
and day
cycles
turning
to ancient rhythms
soothing mysteries
that place everything above land
in perfect perspective
