I Sing the Sea
Mary Jo Balistreri


My skin flowers against

         your waves of silk

                  blooms inside your vast expanse


I inhale your salty taste                    

         breathe your ebb and flow

                  succumb to the thrust of your force

                           the power that brands me yours


Within your world

         in the generosity of your body

                  I find my place


A heron    a gull

         I wade your shores

Diving into your depth

         an osprey  a hawk


Sun catcher of iridescence

         I sing your song

Beneath my song   you sing

         remote   near

         calm   powerful


and I fear     indifferent
