The wind moans softly from the lonely sea


Like the lost souls of sailors


And drowned fishermen


Mutely crying.




The waves roll in from the silent night


Rising and falling without end


Like men and empires


Becoming and dying.




The sea shares its secrets with the ice-bright stars


Timeless eyes a million light years distant


Eternal, knowing, watching


Through dark clouds flying.




All the patterns of life are sown in the restless sea


Never still, yet never changing


The face of God is sketched within the stars


The wind is sighing.




And I am but a mortal man, microscopic, insignificant


The Truth is hidden wisely from my eyes


I know nothing -


But I am trying.
