the sea breeze sages


when will you know me
as only a breeze upon the sea
as only the spray from its waves
or as a cloud behaves
drifting across the blue expanse
lost to your sight in the distance
even if it no longer shows
still i'm real to one who knows
when will you know me for sure
so free and so pure
so thorough and complete
the generations repeat
when will you know only i existed
knowledge of wonder you resisted
and there i forever and a day
as always as the waves spray
as always as the sea breeze
coursing even through the forest trees
whispering where i may be seen
where i've always been
you may not know me by a sound
there none may be found
and don't assume you'll know my shape
nor look for me along the landscape
rather just look for me as i blow across the ocean
hear me sing the splendour of devotion
rejoicing in your heart
for know me there to start
just look for me as i spray the beaches
hear me where any sound reaches
not the soulless sound alone
but the power behind the drone
not the swaying of a towering tree
but the force at the back of what you see
i am the very animation
yet you have known me as creation
when will you know me
as only a breeze upon the sea
as only the spray from its waves
or as a cloud behaves
when will the glory of the time arrive
let illusion not survive
you and i throughout the ages
one forever the sea breeze sages.
