The Silent Sea and I

half moon

The silence roped me in.

Quiet surrounded me.

The sea beneath me was calm,

Moving placidly,

I could feel it’s flow

on it’s journey around this earth.

Blown by winds at times,

Renewed with rains

Vaporized by the sun

Frozen by the cold.

Still, tonight, it moved me

In silence.

Staring up at the night sky

A comet raced by

and disappeared into the darkness.

The half moon hung suspended,

the flat side of it ragged,

fading into the night.

We are one,

This silent sea, the night and I.

Arms outstretched

I lay, floating,

the only sound was my breath.
