Empty Ocean

floating on an empty ocean
warm and calm the only motion
a gentle puff of air exhaling
then breathing in and never failing

to make ripples radiate around me
in my mind I feel I've found the
time and place for me to leave
letting go what I've believed -

the atmosphere through which I'm rising
flows through me, it's so surprising
the curvature of Earth appearing
the darkened sky with stars which we're in -

blue and white the Earth keeps shrinking
with the Moon and all my thinking
the Sun still bright and always shining
a beacon in the night for finding

while far away and still in motion
the emptiness a magic potion
seething with its life unseen
in the space that's in between -

seeming to me like the ocean
warm and calm, the only motion
rhythmic gentle inhalation
a subtle feeling and sensation

floating in an empty ocean
thoughts with wings the only motion
flying to you in this rhyme
from a place that's out of time
