the lesser being of a lesser god, a poem

Poetry
i always come back to the sea ~ in the winter when gardens lay waste and the contemplative time is upon us and in summer, languid and color crazy no matter the season, she shines self-confident decked-out in sunlighted spray tossing her waves into wild arabesque roaring her traveling chants no reluctant tourist, the sea the eternal sea, in the power of her isness she mocks me marks me as the lesser being of a lesser god I waged His wars, and now I pass and die. O me! for why is all around us here As if some lesser god had made the world ...
