Ocean Memory

Movement and motion.                           Waves rolling into infinity,               Responding to the pull                                   Of the moon and                                        Wind currents.                                                  Ocean depths carry the memory                  Of seaweed, spine and rib;                           Of whale, sea otter and dolphin,                Fish schools diving and emerging                 In the glistening sunlight on water.             The umbilical chord of life,                          This aquatic universe.
