Comprised mostly of waves
and depth, the spirit
of water lives here
aplenty.

As blue as any other blue
the motion whips itself
into whitecaps of calamity
or flows flat, windless

rumored as if a myth

existing among the mildest
waves and most subtle reefs,

will dig their oars in deep

to inevitably find health

and rest upon arrival.
