9/9/16 About the ocean and the connectedness of life and people
The great body of water
breathes like some enormous monster,
a beast too large to see,
so impossibly big that its outline
See the pulse and beat of the waves,
their life, vital, insisting on being heard,
insisting on being felt.
Smell the salty tang in the air.
Its salt spray wet breath
kissing your cheek...
bringing indiscernible messages
from far off places
and whispers of the lives of strangers.
