The Ocean and The Sea

by gt281 (writer), State of Denial, December 17, 2012

The ocean never ceases to flail against the land...

THE OCEAN………………….

The ocean crashes against the land and shore

It wishes the land would be no more

Forever biting, tearing, ripping asunder

With waves of tumbling thunder

It does make waste upon the rocky land

Against the dry ground it grinds and grinds

It wishes to be let free of the land that binds

Forever swirling, whirling with all its might

Through skylit days and starry night

Against the land it does fight

Against the waves the land tries to hold firm

Upon its feet the ocean does lash and turn

With sandy shores and rocky cliffs

It holds against the waters swift

The land holds its own, against the oceans storm

With volcanic thunder and lava hot

Into the ocean it is reborn when it does drop

With land above and land beneath

The land now binds the ocean so deep

The ocean never ceases to flail against the land

With moonlight power it seeks to expand

The waters ebb and flow pulling the land to its breast

It never does give the land time to rest

Ocean meets land, each in an endless quest

Only time will tell, which shall pass the test

The oceans majesty is vast and blue

But the land itself can always start anew……………..

THE SEA……………

She calls to me

Her endless motion beckons

It stirs my soul

To feel her breathing below my feet

It is where I must go

Her sister’s fingers in my hair

The limitless horizon before me

Calling me to roam

She stretches out before me

In unbound waters deep

I can not tame her

This tempest that I keep

She tests my being

Tossing me against her breast

In a contest I can never win

Sail with me she says

And you will know who you are

Come with me

Amidst my liquid blue

She calls to me

And I must forever go……….
