The Ocean Speaks






seaside earlier today


I request of shree ocean


her wisdom


and upon opening to this


and receiving


images begin to arise


swirling cocoons of water


deep under the sea


encircle and heal


fish flash by pirouetting


darting


brilliant elusive colors


as dolphins look on


I continue this descent downward


continue


toward the deep dark depths


opaque shadow world


mystery of the black light


ocean floor


and


in this descent


swirling churning waters


smooth out and yield to


a building silence


silence


which contains all sound


dive deep


the ocean whispers


allow the waters to


heal you as you


stream and drift


swaying and oscillating


as you are pulled in this


downward descent


allow sea life to


adore you


as multitudinous creatures look on with


eyes that contain centuries and eons


of wisdom


indeed, dangers can exist


in these waters


but this inner journey


as the momentum of trust builds


bypasses these


to finally arrive


resting and abiding on ocean floor


continue to abide


in this primordial terrain


the ocean whispers


become one with the silence


become one with the stillness


silence and stillness that contains all sound and movement


just be
