The wild sea

The wild sea

Is dreaming and breathing

And mirroring the sky

Its surface changes all of the time

With wind and rain and storms

Reflecting clouds and light and stars

The wild sea brings me peace

Even when it is restless

It reminds me of how the Holy Spirit moves

Through water and all of nature

And how we can never exist apart from the dreaming

Of God

Even when we lose our way

Our restless hearts still silently beat

Marking time with the rhythms

This wild ocean creates in our souls

As we hunger for its benediction

On those nights and days

We lose our way

Falling out of rhythm

For a time

With the breath of God
