I fear the sea

I fear the sea
not for the lives she sometimes steals
in the dark
in the light of day
across God’s painted sunset
on a whim
when she is glassy-eyed and raging
I fear the sea
for the wild screaming foam
reminding me to live
for the crystalline scent
awakening infinite possibilities

seagulls beckoning
whales bemoaning other loves
in angelic harmonies
electrified water witches smiling
laughing in the tumbling water
seducing with passionate life
teeming, glistening scales streaking rainbows
lost would I become in a dream there
lose my sand footprints to the wind
lose my mind to you
my way back
lost I would become
I fear the places I never want to leave
I fear the sea


“There’s a place for us,
Somewhere a place for us.
Peace and quiet and open air
Wait for us

There’s a time for us,
Some day a time for us,
Time together with time to spare,
Time to learn, time to care,
Some day!

We’ll find a new way of living,
We’ll find a way of forgiving
Somewhere . . .”

lyrics directly above by Stephen Sondheim
hearts and love to those lost in Orlando
