Back To The Sea - Poem by Mollie Odell Bourne
I hold a shell up to my ear,
Listen to the sea calling me
Me without gill or fin
Back to my very origin.
Back to the saline sea of my mother's womb
Back to life's ultimate swim
From a safe quiet sea
To begin my life and be.
Back further still
Back to the moment of conception
In a sea of love
Poised to start the first inning.
I am back to my very beginning.
Then ages and ages back
Back a billion years or so,
When a primitive organism was I
Climbing out of a gigantic sea
A new species, the start of my family tree.
