Maine’s Coast

I wrote this poem on the craggy coast of Maine with the churning waves hammering against the ancient rocks. 

Maine’s Coast

Majestic, mighty green sea

boiling and foaming and frothing,

shattering rugged rocks.

Dashing and crushing

like hammers  on steel,

taming what you command.

Pounding relentlessly

against ancient ocean bars.

“This far and no more,” mighty sea.

You are constrained in order

by awesome power,

and I,

by awesome love.
