The Sea - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

The sea blown by the winds
A million lights glinting under the sun
Charting out a course for my mind
Each luminous line entering my mind
Helping clear my muddled thoughts
Lessening the pressure of thinking
Slowly, slowly, the hynoptic lines
Dance and glint in increasing
Intensity towards dusk
Affording a health exercise
More ideal than meditation and jogging
I then feel the sea taking up my
Thoughts and feelings sending them
To yonder lands where there are friends
