Ocean

And at the end of the day
The vast array of stars in the night sky
Give sight to the moon holding secret
The meeting of an endless ocean to an endless horizon.
It is here that one can embrace the vastness of the universe
And it is here I shall stay.

Oh blue ocean seize the day
For the sea will survive when all else fades away
And with our courage, we’ll rise again
In the promise of a new day
For the sea is where we hail from
And where we long to be
And to henceforth, we shall return.

So blue ocean lead the way
And show us what mystery you hath today
For when the ocean swells with surface waves
I will see your name as the north wind lays claim
Tranquil in your deepest blues
Born from the sea.

And when the winds seek to divide
As Poseidon’s trident stirs his great oceans
The gust swells into walls of blue
But I ask, am I not the same as you,
For the sea flows through my veins too
So great ocean I swallow my pride
For we need each other to survive

img_2855I sit here in the middle of an ocean, Atlantic it is
You are in the very air that I breath
Your winds purify the breath and energy I need

A blue ocean is in the mystics eye at ocean’s end
Lead me to a single breath of the wind on the water.

  1. Beautiful Jeff
    I love your loving hymn to the ocean and its importance to us all. Its song, it’s might and delight. Thank you for giving this to us.
    The images are great too showing two moods.

    1. Thank you Mirja, the verse you listed came to me in a flash, which I had to quickly write down; it’s the verse that means the most to me for it is for someone special. And it allowed for the rest of the poem to come into place.

    1. Thanks, I did enjoy it. It made it a little difficult to pick the right version. I guess Robert Plant stuck with me because of the all-star cast that came together to record it.
