Ocean MoonTimeless ocean, bountiful waves,
I honour your depths and immensity,
Rolling brine under a silvered
Full moon, a noble sight since
Antiquity when men and women
Plowed these waters,
Love of light, love of life,
Stars, planets in heavenly flight.
Beneath transparent dome,
Vast liquid sphere spread
Pulsing beneath my keel,
Supporting, raising
This rusted fishing trawler,
Deck lights burning aloft,
We make solemn prayer,
Give humbled thanks,
Recognition of our finite place,
To safely navigate uncharted
Depths, to take fish,
Our nets full,
My soul brimming,
Heart heaving,
Burning diesel
Tonight.
