Siren Song

By Savita Joshi

The ocean has always been magical to me. A huge living organism that breathes in, and out, with the tides.

 

Sometimes she is harsh -

like when the waves beat you down

and scrape you along the sand.

But there is a gentless too -

like when the white foamy blanket, Creeps up to your toes, and kisses them.

 

The ocean is a place where I feel strong, and connected to a lineage of those who live and love with the sea.

 

To me,

the ocean is the only church I’ll ever need. Stepping into her breaking waves -

is like stepping into a cathedral,

older than time.

 

Feeling her currents press against me - is like meeting the creator of this world, for she did help shape it’s beginning.

 

The ocean never lets me down.

Time and time again she welcomes me - holds me close,

sings me a song,

and lets me go.

 

But her touch never leaves my body, and I find myself pulled back to her - over and over again.
