Moon Baby


In your ocean eyes shine the secret of the seas

In your cry is the call of old sea birds

You breathe the sigh of salty waves

Which roll and crash and roll again

The push and pull tide

Created you,

Nourished you

You were born under the staring moon

And now, like us, you are part of this


In my submarine dreams I see you,

Many leagues from here

Captain of a great ship,

Eternal Seamistress of my heart

I will be the land that beckons you,

The sand that warms your weary limbs

You are the perky bubble

Keeping the kelp afloat

You are all time--

Air, water, sand, sun

Child of the ebb and flow,

My Moon Baby
