Saltwater, seawater

Rise and fall

I dream on warm sand

And hear the tide call

I hear all the voices

Of sailors at sea

They are at the bottom

But still beckon to me

I feel the presence

Of mermaids below

They sing to clamshells

And tease seaweed to grow

Sparkles and shimmers

Does the high tide cast

I know of your secrets

your treasures, your past

I know of the Kraken

Who swims straight and true

Through silky salt waters

Controlling the blue

But I know better

No one commands thee

Nothing may be captor

Of you, mighty sea

I smell salty water

I taste ocean too

I see stretching miles

Of only deep blue

Saltwater, seawater

Rise and fall

I dream on warm sand

And hear the tide call
