Sea of Green – By Medora Chevalier 28.06.09

The beach was dry at first and hot

It burnt the feet that dared to stand

The rocks were sharp and pitiless

The blood of ripped soles spread along the strand.

Silent, scarce seen, the sea began to swell

The purest waters with slight fingers

Began their gentle probing of the edge

Of rocks, where ancient nature lingers

“Remember there is more than strength

And heat and hardness” ripples whispered

Remember there is love and sweetness too

Remember there is freedom!” The rocks blistered.

Yet still more waters came, more joining more

Waves foamy, shining, splashing

Flowing, life giving, laughing. Then

Huge waves upon hard rocks crashing.

The sea swelled in its glory

Glorious, the loveliest ever seen

All who saw were filled with wonder

From far and wide, a Sea of Green!

The rocks resisted. Made the waters break.

Their stony harshness left the waves to die

The waters falling trailed their tears behind them

The waters ebbing sounded soft their cries.

The tide turned once again, and deeper yet

It turned against the rocks and battered.

So many droplets, strong together, crashed

In power, the old rocks shattered!

The Sea of Green will shine more brightly

Spread far and wide through freedom’s land

And deep below, the fish will play

Where harsh rocks now lie smashed to sand.
