    The Wide Ocean

    Ocean, if you were to give, a measure, a ferment, a fruit
    of your gifts and destructions, into my hand,
    I would choose your far-off repose, your contour of steel,
    your vigilant spaces of air and darkness,
    and the power of your white tongue,
    that shatters and overthrows columns,
    breaking them down to your proper purity.

    Not the final breaker, heavy with brine,
    that thunders onshore, and creates
    the silence of sand, that encircles the world,
    but the inner spaces of force,
    the naked power of the waters,
    the immoveable solitude, brimming with lives.
    It is Time perhaps, or the vessel filled
    with all motion, pure Oneness,
    that death cannot touch, the visceral green
    of consuming totality.

    Only a salt kiss remains of the drowned arm,
    that lifts a spray: a humid scent,
    of the damp flower, is left,
    from the bodies of men. Your energies
    form, in a trickle that is not spent,
    form, in retreat into silence.

    The falling wave,
    arch of identity, shattering feathers,
    is only spume when it clears,
    and returns to its source, unconsumed.

    Your whole force heads for its origin.
    The husks that your load threshes,
    are only the crushed, plundered, deliveries,
    that your act of abundance expelled,
    all those that take life from your branches.

    Your form extends beyond breakers,
    vibrant, and rhythmic, like the chest, cloaking
    a single being, and its breathings,
    that lift into the content of light,
    plains raised above waves,
    forming the naked surface of earth.
    You fill your true self with your substance.
    You overflow curve with silence.

    The vessel trembles with your salt and sweetness,
    the universal cavern of waters,
    and nothing is lost from you, as it is
    from the desolate crater, or the bay of a hill,
    those empty heights, signs, scars,
    guarding the wounded air.

    Your petals throbbing against the Earth,
    trembling your submarine harvests,
    your menace thickening the smooth swell,
    with pulsations and swarming of schools,
    and only the thread of the net raises
    the dead lightning of fish-scale,
    one wounded millimetre, in the space
    of your crystal completeness. read more »

    Out of the Rolling Ocean, The Crowd


    OUT of the rolling ocean, the crowd, came a drop gently to me,
    Whispering, I love you, before long I die,
    I have travel'd a long way, merely to look on you, to touch you, read more »

    July Fourth By The Ocean

    The continent's a tamed ox, with all its mountains,
    Powerful and servile; here is for plowland, here is
    for park and playground, this helpless
    Cataract for power; it lies behind us at heel read more »

    Ocean of Forms

    I dive down into the depth of the ocean of forms,
    hoping to gain the perfect pearl of the formless.

    No more sailing from harbor to harbor with this my weather-beaten boat. read more »

    Once by the Pacific

    The shattered water made a misty din.
    Great waves looked over others coming in,
    And thought of doing something to the shore
    That water never did to land before. read more »

    Where far it rolls in its calm and grandeur,

    A Coast View

    High 'mid the shelves of a grey cliff, that yet
    Riseth in Babylonian mass above,
    In a benched cleft, as in the mouldered chair
    Of grey-beard Time himself, I sit alone, read more »
