Under Your Blue Sea
Blue-grey eyes always so striking,
Like ocean spray on pounding days,
A cooling vision beguiles me,
Rip tides draw me into your ways.
Sand clouds swirl against your shoreline, ,
But clear up the deeper I go,
Shadow figures flee before me,
Vague promises I’ve yet to know.
Oh! My reflection’s in beauty’s eyes,
Could being there not be a dream?
Welcoming arms that embrace me,
All this without even a scheme?
Like the sea your love engulfs me,
Reveals treasures no man has seen,
Fantasy rocked without measure,
What on earth could all of this mean?
Lunar tides count days of passion,
Mystic rhythms come into play,
The gift of menstrual cycles,
'Love children' who wait for their day.
Let me breathe beneath your waters,
Live and die under your blue sea,
The delight of sons and daughters,
Share with God what He meant to be!
