World Oceans Day 2016

I am reposting my thoughts from last year’s World Oceans Day. Now more than ever, our oceans are in need of protection.

“How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is clearly Ocean.”

~ Arthur C. Clarke



Expansive and deep,
beautiful but volatile,
ample force to turn
vessels to splinters.

Teeming with life,
ceaselessly churning,
an indefatigable
dynamo.

Kissed by the sun,
caressed by the winds,
extolled by poets
and sailors alike.

Sustainer of life
as we know it on Earth,
yet with all its
grandeur and might…

still fragile.
