The wisdom of the sea

by Jem Croucher

The water looked like crystal
as it sparkled in the sun
Like glass its light refracted
for a New Year just begun

A ‘je ne sais quoi’ said something
as a whisper silently
caught and carried by the breeze
across the windless sea

I think it was a promise
though I’m not completely sure
so I will come here every day
to listen out for more

For the sea it has a voice
oft heard across the years
both a comfort in my joy
and solace in my tears

So I’ve come to trust its wisdom
and as soon as it confides
I’ll share that with you here
when the right time it decides
