and gleaming crystal clear.

fishing ships far offshore call to me
how joyful were those years
casting, catching, communing
lines between God and nature faded
ocean tides rule my life

Pacific beauty, garland of shimmering pastels
Textures and colors astound, deep in your ocean heart
Your court is larger than any kingdom on Earth...
