200 miles from land, dead calm, hot and hazy, I was inspired.
|A Strange Day at Sea
The sea was glass without a ripple one
There was no horizon, all directions none
Blue all around, no sky, no water, no earth, no sun
With the haze up thick none could be found
No up, no down, no wind no sound
If it were not for the deck beneath my feet
I would surely float away like the waves from the heat.
