The Death Of The Sea

The sea will tell us its tale …

sea will tell

We came from the depths of the sea my son
one day of which I’ll be returned
as long as we can still know
that the sea will never burn

But if we came from the sea my father what then
have we all done
but turn the sea into a garbage dump
it seems the devil has won ?

The father peered out at the distant waves
and slowly shook his head
at the whale lying there on the sand covered  shore
at the whale laying dead

“We can only do what we alone can do ” and looking back at the boy
he took  his son by the hand
and walked along placing  trash in their bag
being as thorough as can stand

The sea will tell us all it’s tale if and when
we all learn to listen
Perhaps once again the sea will shine out where the sun
and moon shall glisten

Look , look out across the waves at night in distant moon glow
and if we beg the sea to forgive
it could  yet happen as god has planned
and the sea from all we’ve taken we turn around and give

Sometime in my life I started to write about my life journey , in poetry, in storyperhaps to sort them out and enter them intoa place of safe keeping . The soul of the writeris perhaps best described in their words , emotions and thoughts . If these poemsor stories touch something inside youthen maybe I have succeeded in sharing . I will not write about my selfin profile , because self isn't so important in writing . Only the journey in wordsandthe sharing areimportant . Why would weever say " Now about me !"........I'd rather write about life , nature , serenity ........

    It is so sad that humanity sees not the damage caused by thoughtless acts and societies that care not for the beauty of Nature we were gifted with. Magnificent message to humanity, Ed. Emotive and well crafted. Great work.

    Lets hope we heed the cry of a choking sea, and rectify the wrongs, humanity’s greed so complete but yet still not too late to balance. Nicely penned Ed and hopeful we can learn to respect mother earth and right the wrongs of the past. Cheers!

    Good to see a new post by you Ed. Great message here, and I hope humanity wakes up and sees some sense before it is too late. We need to protect the sea.
