The Ocean Howler

The ocean howler
The sweeping subsurface
Universal presence
Ebb and flow, sip and sigh
Propelling the sounds
Of ol' maritime legends
Lost and reflected in a sailor's eyes
Of white crest-filled arcs
Waves of glass
Hurling fury and might
The seductive sea
Sirens rise in her song
From the depths of dreams
The cry expounds
Heard by tender mother earth
Our sea in deep blue
Frothy mist
She takes her next breath
