A Poem for The Sea

A Poem for The Sea

Whisper to me
Tell me the secrets no one knows
No one but the sand that sways beneath your breath 
No one but the coastline you swallow with your kiss
No one but the hulls of recked boats, who’s sailors’ souls swoon in your dark womb
Tell me the stories of the earth 
Of how we walk upon it 
Of how you swallowed us up and spat us out and made all that is and are 
You are the endless one 
The mother of the mother 
Ageless
Swollen 
We are ever tucked in your embrace 
Ocean 
I want to thank you 
Thank you for making life 
Because now I get to live it
