As I Look Out to the Ocean

As I Look Out to the Ocean

A Poem by Wolf Towne

As I sit under the shade of a tropical palm
And gaze towards the horizon
Two magnificent sheets of blue
Identical in beauty
Meeting in a seamless manor

My thoughts are calmed, and I see a face
A sight of endless beauty
That of the ocean
That bellows in front of me

Water flows around me
Holding me in its arms rocking back and forth
I lay back my head, and I am transported to a place

Where you are cradling my face
And kissing me softly
It is here, in this space
You were tattooed into my conscience

I look up,
Into the deep blue sky
Past clouds and into the cosmos
Where your intellect is held
And I am transported to a place

Where the edges of the world close in
And darkness surrounds us
You make me feel safe
And it is here, in this vessel
Where we came to love

My heart swells with your image in my mind
A drop of something bittersweet on my tongue
Curls my lips into a smile
And I thank the universe for you
