I am goddess, healer, light-bearer, and friend,
A dance in the shadows and world without end,
Where white horses gallop ashore at high tide,
A foot firm on each back, I stand regally astride,
To surf the sea strand twixt the ebb and the flow,
I bring beachcomber’s treasure of sea glass to stow.
I am starfish, manatee, dolphin and pearls,
A Fibonacci sequence of calcium whorls,
Where kelp forest fronds sway to and fro,
And phosphorescence shimmers an emerald glow,
The four compass points are my realm and domain,
Air, fire, earth, water all bow to my reign.
I am tempest, zephyr, doldrums and breeze,
The eye of the typhoon and arctic ice freeze,
Where mermaids may weep and yet, Lorelei sings,
The gods are no match for this queen among kings,
The moon is my orb and bright coral my crown,
A thunderbolt my sceptre and seaweed my gown.
I am the space in between, a comma, a pause
In the bubbling breath of a drowning man’s jaw,
Where indigo fingers curl tight around his soul,
Pulling him down to the lost spirit shoals,
In the blink of an eye, I breathe life anew,
Gasping for air he survives the deep blue.
I am mind’s eye awake and heart open wide,
To the cosmic connections of spirit to guide,
Where soul seekers meet beyond time and space
In a multi-dimensional zero point place,
I welcome and nourish their healing life force,
With energy flowing from all that is source.

Very interesting poem about the sea. The sea is a sign of divinity, a world of it’s own far away as an outer space but it touches us closely at heart, we hear it’s songs in our minds. Travel from east to west is the longest journey on earth over thousands of miles and all seasons, geographical and environmental conditions from mild, moist comfortable, soft, rich to harsh and cruel deserts, discomfort, hard climb and dangerous ascend, dangers, piracy, attacks, hazards, unfriendliness of people, strange and mysterious places. When one reaches the west the journey doesn’t end. It continues westward but a man finds that he has orbited the earth as he is back in the east where he once stood. He feels he hasn’t yet reached his destination and he continues westward till he stands again in the west. Again, he feels there is something further in the west and continues his journey till he finds that he is once again back in the east. Still not satisfied he continues with his journey as a condition of orbiting. The distance of journey from east to west keeps increasing after each circumnavigation on planet earth, it’s an endless journey, the earth is very, very big.
