Oceans

And at the end of the day
When the oceans kiss the sky
And the sky turning the deepest blue
Where the vast array of stars in the night sky
Give sight to the moon holding ancient secrets 
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….. jc

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

I sit here in the middle of an ocean, Atlantic it is
You are in the very air that I breathe
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.

I was officially diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease on October 29, 2012. These are my thoughts on Parkinson's and a variety of subjects.

  1. JC, you have written such a beautiful song of praise to the ocean, its importance, beauty and meaning. As I read it the two verses below just appeared from nowhere…..well, somewhere.

    I was born by the North Sea
    I crossed the Atlantic Ocean
    Sailed The Caribbean Sea;
    They all spoke

    a language of wildness and strength
    of peace and love.
    They all enchanted me,
    made me tingle with life.

  2. This is beautiful, JC. I don’t live by the sea of course, but how I love the river that flows so near our house. Looking at water makes us more reflective, and appreciative I think, of the life we’re given.
