Ocean*
by Michael Isaccs


OCEAN
engenders peace,
relaxation, tranquillity—
loved by all, a divine essence
comprised of LIFE,
LAW, and LOVE.

OCEAN is LIFE,
pulsating movement,
waters and tide,
ebb and flow,
calm or rough—
engaging and multiple senses,
an archetype of all
that is living.

OCEAN is LAW,
gravity keeps it intact;
a great source
coordinating perfectly
land, moon, sun, stars,
planets, and ocean.

OCEAN is LOVE,
people bathe, fish,
boat, ski, swim,
travel its beaches
throughout centuries.

OCEAN connects us
to something greater than ourselves,
We are the waves and merge into the power,
depth,and peace
of ocean’s vast eternity—
to know that eternity
is to know God.
OCEAN.
