I'Ve Never Been Out To Sea - Poem by Steven Federle

I’ve never been out to sea

though I’ve touched iridescent waves,
flown over blue surf
and played in safe, familiar bays
with dog-eyed seals and
wondering whales.
But gazing, just as the sun
juts beyond night’s edge,
I see this curving ball, endless
band of water held close
to jealous core by clear bands
of gravity, hurtling
through the void,
My human eye, wrapped in
spheres of bone and blood,
follows earth’s trajectory just
ahead of the season, basks in
the summer sun as it
heats blue waters, casts high
bright towers of
for I am a child of the sea,
and I can see out far
and in deep.
