Simply the sea

by Jem Croucher


It is freedom and power and love and magic
and heaven and life and much more
It is friendship and companion and all of these things
and is something I completely adore

It is constant and steadfast and established and firm
but also restless and rhythmic and change
It is scary and frightening and quiver and quake
and has unimaginable range

It is empathy, invention, serendipity and charm
and all words in my vocabulary
It is representation, picture and view
and is, quite simply, the sea
