The Ocean Reminds Us

The ocean reminds us
that time and tides
both take and give.
That each drop in it
conjoins to make the whole,
and that the weight of your sorrows,
the mass of your fears,
can be carried in Earth’s fruitful womb,
and give birth to fresh eyes,
perhaps bloodshot and clouded at first
but then christened by light.
The ocean reminds us
not to act,
but to be,
not to look,
but to see
with honest hearts
and generous souls.
