May Ocean day, today, now become a tide of change.
A time of reflection, of new choices a season to rearrange
Can time be measured by counting merely one-day’s actions?
When it is a tide coming to change mass movement not small fractions
Is Doomsday the keeper of the ocean in humanity’s time?
United Nations Ocean Decade, judgement to be counted as sublime
Humanity’s peril existences blaring sound, sea level rising, revolt and alarm
To move beyond prioritizing fossil fuel habits, farmed fishing subsidies and geo-political harm
Oceans forgiving font of injustice abuses greedy power of humanity’s nuclear folly and plastic fears
Higher wisdom applied, timeless nature, transform age, enlightened minds stretch tides past years
Depths, resources, resiliency incomprehensible wealth amasses coming of a treasured tide
Could not all fall in love with the rich fluid, unchartered territory of wondrous loving waters to abide?
How to see the ocean a new, from large ocean states perspective and view
Open hearts to remind there is so much to do, to keep ocean in focus and not go askew
Majesty knows no bounds body freely floating in the ocean
Breath of life aligned one primal penultimate flowing motion
Bringing life force through body, spirit and renewing mind
Calibrating to universal order priorities, beyond the world to find
Nexus in atmosphere unifying source of life for us all
Boundaries of no division open beyond one’s rule, laws or Call
Oh but the healing powers, the body effervescence, can we embrace the intimacy coming of life force
Rejuvenating spirit keeper of most reflective powers above and below growing humanity’s new course
To apply respect, scientific knowledge navigate a transformed way, led by nature and the ocean of life
The solutions, based within natural forces will present like a husband coming in union with fertile wife
None other can birth captivate like ocean’s infinite sparkle to cleanse and reflect
Sun’s golden rise, moon’s face on full life force sets sail universal truths to eject
Preservation of species, marine protected areas, renewed policy for sea and shore
Next gen to live love of ocean, youth in action to core lasting solutions evermore
