To feel the sea

by Jem Croucher

A ship is out there sailing
I can’t see it but it’s there
Out upon the ocean waves
of me, it’s unaware
And yet a synergy akin
we share both it and I
Affinity with ocean wide
as both go passing by

I’m landlocked now but often
to the seashore I am drawn
to gaze out to horizon
on an autumnal morn
And I know that out there somewhere
a ship is sailing by
And it, like me, will feel the sea
beneath a deep blue sky
