Back to the Sea

I want to go back to the sea

where light and dark are one,

where I’m free.

Back to sea waits and wiggles
where the will to be
(not greed) trumps right and wrong.

I would be a tiny fish, live one marvelous moment
or a big one, snapping up the little.

The sea sings, ‘the one who doesn't know me is an orphan.'

I will go to the deepest place,

listen, and find my wings

where they form.
