I Am Ocean

amocean5

Snowflakes
falling softly
tentatively
pure, white
innocent
new life.

I Am one.

Earth
cold hard
dormant
I land here.
I am ice, I am lost.
I wait.

Spring comes
warm sun
I melt into
Playing, trickling
Tiny rivulet.

I am born.

Playful riffles
Gently learning
to flow
to maneuver
to be Stream.

Time passing.
Stream is good
but I want more.
Then one day –
rushing, roaring,
swirling, foaming

I become river.

Sometimes sunlight
flowing smoothly
Other times storms,
rocks, gashing
hard, struggling.

Learning
to be with rocks
trees, sky,
other rivulets
and streams.

I am more.

Time passing.
Waiting and
wanting,
with a deep
hunger inside
for vast.

And when I
finally let go
of Self,
I transform –
to endless, infinite
water Ocean.

I die.
I am born.
I Am One.
