The Thrashing Sea

She is the woman

who fans my feet

when I swim

She buoys me

Calms my mind

Soothes my body

She is the history of

the middle passage

taking those of us who

decided to endure the journey

to safety

She is the protector

of fishermen

holding her breath when

they cast their nets

being invisible wings

when they dive into her belly


She regulates the

sea and women’s cycle

spawning the next generation

to live out their dreams

She is water-ocean

vigorous and energizing

the head of yesterday

and the tail of tomorrow
