I Need the Sea Because It Teaches Me
I need the sea because it teaches me.
I don’t know if I learn music or awareness,
if it’s a single wave or its vast existence,
or only its harsh voice or its shining
suggestion of fishes and ships.
The fact is that until I fall asleep,
in some magnetic way I move in
the university of the waves.
I first learned of this poem from a painting on our local elementary school's wall. I had to know more...and I found so much beauty in Neruda's words. Now I read them once a week along with Rumi and ee cummings. They all give me something for my soul.
