Treasure Island

Jonathan Karanja

(Nairobi)

Earth, Moon & Ocean (V)


Swirling, white as foam, whoosh! swish!
Eddying, tossing and ebbing at every pull and push,
Of earth’s natural satellite, which around earth revolves,
So does the mighty ocean and her currents,
To moon’s gravitational pull respond as earth twirls,
Spinning, rotating on its own axis as the Great Deep swirls,
This same ‘Deep’ teems with many creatures,
Flying fish, octopus, saw-fish, plankton to name just a few,
Of these magnificent, abundant, lovely and resplendent,
Breathing, living creatures which display our Creator’s design quite magnificent

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
