Hello, ocean (summer smooth).
Tonight I wish my own flown fingers could curl
Around the land just as yours do.
Windblown and wave kissed (you are
The one man symphony and)
I am overwhelmed by sights and sounds.
Hello, ocean. Lovely night, I do agree.
I wonder, did you see this day
A woman strolling on your shores?
Of course, you must see so many of them,
But this one in particular (she walked
Into the water and)
She simply didn’t stop.
Imagine my bewilderment when she did not resurface!
I wonder, ocean, do you believe she could simply vanish?
(You are omnipotent)
Yes, goodnight to you as well.
