The mighty ocean

You are the genesis of Life
yet I fear you the most

Swollen river rapidly moves
thunderous sea howls aloud

Meeting the mighty ocean
in a celebration of creation

You are the reason I am alive
yet I fear to plunge on my own

For an entire day I worship you from afar
watch your moods and pay obeisance

My heart is awed by your vastness
the changing sky above stirs my soul

The sun gives way to dark
many questions come alive

The fading light promises secrets deep
The silence makes the roar of your surf soothing, at last

Wonder what lies beyond that horizon
where the toy ships dance in the dark

I sense a familiarity, a deep intimacy
of cleanliness and purity found only in darkness

You help me reach deep within
to find truth and beauty in my soul

Are the dark knights your angels
or do they tread safely and cautiously

Do you get bigger and stronger
or does life take on a new meaning from here?

Where do you meet your creator
at the horizon?

Or, Are you the Creator?

There lies a world of secrets on the inside too. That's the scary part. Because we don't know...

Excellent. Now turning to poetry? Last line of the poem is perturbing.

In a tumultuous world the oceans waters almost remain unchanging ( at least to the human eye). Reassuring:)

'Water' carries you into recesses of feeling otherwise impenetrable:)

I hate to be near the sea, and to hear it raging and roaring like a wild beast in its den. It puts me in mind of the everlasting efforts of the human mind, struggling to be free and ending just where it began. ~William Hazlitt

I cant help but wonder the beautiful transformation I am seeing.

This one comes from inside you. Can tell. We all know your love affair with the waters. Very expressive. Write with more speed, don't get all lazy about this blog!
