My Friend The Sea

Do you know my friend
the sea

From Turkey to Patmos, Greece

From Turkey to Patmos, Greece

 he watches everything we do

Fisherman: Antioch, Turkey

Fisherman: Antioch, Turkey

you, rolling over
in your beach bank sleep
me, chasing seagulls
down the dunes.
you, your skirts held high
wading in the water.

English Bay: Vancouver, BC  Canada

English Bay: Vancouver, BC Canada

The lovers.
Those who go alone.
He sees them all.

My feet: Sea of Galilee

My feet: Sea of Galilee

If we’re ourselves to know
we should get to know the sea.
