Vast as the sea,
Powerful and mysterious,
With unknown depths and wonders,
Unpredictable and tempestuous.
It calls, it captivates, enraptures,
But never says “I am yours.”
And so we long for it,
Awestruck by it’s power and majesty.
If we are wise,
We allow it’s many moods, weather it’s storms,
We honor and respect it,
But never presume we can possess it.
