Ocean Waters - Poem by AHO Speaks

Lapping water, rolling waves
May you become my peaceful grave.
You come from all directions at once
How well you wear your countenance.

You are before the horizons edge
Close enough to cover the corals ledge.
You have a desire to absorb the land
But God retains your desire; in the cup of its hand.

You sustain my beloved ocean birds with fish
To give so much out of a single wish..
You cleanse yourself at predetemined times
To harvest like the fruit of the earthly vines.

You are as predictable as the earthly sun
Part of creation from the God of one.
You provide for the roots of each mangrove tree
Within coral itself to live and grow; is a mystery.

You are a provider from a thought of the holy one
For earth a reflection of God's will was done.
