Back to the Sea

I want to go back to the sea

where light and dark are one

- where I’m free, where I’m from.

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 to the sound rising 
find my wings where they form.
