The Silent Sea

Shades of green and aqua blue
The sea painted a thousand hues
Beneath thundering ocean wave
Out of the reach of mariners graves
A living testimony swims in majesty
once the rulers of the sea
A whale song rings from beneath the ocean
A song of praise and true devotion
To the God of creation and of the sea
A sea being robbed by cruel thieves
The whale song drifts silently away
The hands of man have silenced their praise
As God looks down in his majesty
As tears trickle down on the silent sea.

    Debi, thanks for posting this. It makes my heart ache with compassion. I am creating a short meditation video for use with my Episcopal church in Houston and would love to include a reading of your work in the short video. The video is being created from photos about or of the current gulf spill. You would receive full credit for the use of the poem and retain full copyright, of course. Let me know if I can use it. calpreeceus@gmail.com

    Hi Debi: I love your poem and write seeking permission to use it in a performance for musical composition. I have sketched the work for mezzo soprano, flute, clarinet,2 cellos and marimba. I would not charge a fee for the performance or attempt a copyright on your material, and so would not take advantage of your work in any way. I would, however, beg your permission to get the work performed, to credit you for your work. I would like to compose a series of chamber works in a conservationist strain... If you choose to allow me to have your poem performed, I will need a bio page for you. Please email and let me know... Also, I'd love to see you write a poem about Pandas. They are another manifestation of God's creative handiwork that the hands of man would have destroyed. Please send your email address so I can send you a pdf file of the sketch score! ! !
    All Best
