Ocean Our Soul
© 2014 Iony Smith

the ocean our soul
    with endless hopes, dreams and boundless space
    a beginning, an ending a recycling
    a renewal in and of life

the ocean our soul
    deeper than any idea can fathom and akin to truth
    a leveling of experience into one
    shared by all and yet owned by no one
    
the ocean our soul
    running along sandy shores dodging the surf
    tides of emotions interlace through its roaring voice
    quietness and calm lap over busy days and busy ways

the ocean our soul
    amplifying peopleís frailties and transcendent resilience
    all resonating through its currents and undulating swells
    in its presence we are but in the hands of creation

the ocean our soul
    along its beaches or in the middle of its perilous trenches
    there is a pulling, pulling, pulling to give in and be free
    each forever sovereign yet amongst others in kind with ties that bind

the ocean our soul
    with its sediment layers and depths of diversity
    steeped in eternity with graciousness and awe
    its liquid substance our own, human blueprint

the ocean our soul    
    a religion of beauty and great mystery
    a teeming and vast common pool
    a force overwhelmingly unifying

the ocean our soul
    amidst its grandeur, yawning majesty and ubiquitousness
    all stations in life come here for the seaís precious gifts
    abundance and fragility, precious gifts from the sea
 
the ocean our soul
    strangers and friends alike wade and bathe in its waters
    crossing over flowing rivulets grooved in its sands
    sidestepping shells, drift wood and other coastal artifacts
    
the ocean our soul
    where tears of joy and sadness are shed
    dropping and commingling in its giant illuminating well
    shaping the contours of earth, its climate and thus, our fate

the ocean our soul
    still, still, still

the ocean our soul         


Wind Take Me
© 2015 Iony Smith

WIND TAKE ME WHERE YOU GO
    places I donít know

RIDE ME ON YOUR STREAM
    with pelicans from the bluff I dream

LOFTY AND SUBLIME
    fluid, transcending climb

WIND LET ME HEAR YOUR BREEZE
    rustling through the trees

WHISPERING THROUGH AIR
    an ecumenical prayer

SOUNDS SO DECEPTIVELY EARTH
    metaphorically a rebirth

WIND SONGS TO NAMELESS AND KNOWN
    the seeding of all is sown

UNDULATING IN A RANDOM BURST
    seemingly unrehearsed

CALM, TAME SOOTHINGLY LIGHT
    amorphous in its flight

WIND CARRY ME ON YOUR WINGS
    suspended from celestial strings

HUSH FOLLOWS A GUSTY RUSH
    the face a flush   

ANY DIRECTION THE CURRENT CAN COME
    rain and snow succumb

WIND CHIMES DELICATE MELODY
    vibrating serendipity

BLOWING ACROSS THE OCEAN
    stirring up flurries of motion

HOWLING SCOWLING SHIPS DIZZILY CAREEN
    then silence and serene

WIND TAKE ME WHERE YOU GO
    places I donít know

RIDE ME ON YOUR STREAM
    with pelicans from the bluff I dream
