Ocean

I adore this melody
The swish and sway of your movement
The calming sense of purpose
Perseverance

To return always
Back and forth
Gathering momentum
As you approach the finish line

I wonder where you’ve been
And I imagine it should be everywhere
For only gravity retains you
And not even in all forms

Giver of life
Immense and vast
Deep and mysterious
Keeper of secrets and dreams

Dangerous yet promising
We should call our mother Ocean
In honor of the sea
