Sea Sons

The Sea is changing.
Aging beauty, seething with rage
of the forgotten.
Once your tempestuous lover,
violently seductive, wild mystery.
Legends of monsters and gods
poured from her depths
into your sleeping ear.
Challenges, fear and glory brought you
to her shores, pleading for
reinvention, romance, adventure
and all its chaotic cascade.
The Sea swimming with life,
unbound to expectations,
inspiring song and celebrations,
immortal as her sister, Earth.
We are all changing, aging,
wearing down.
Less arrogant heroes than
purveyors of tales,
what will we teach
our grandchildren
of the Sea?
