WHILST THE SEA SINGS PRAYERS

I am singing
Whilst the sea 
Collects prayers
Settles to sleep
Unmoved by grief
I am not waiting 
For it to sweep over me

I sleep whilst the
Sea sings prayers

thanks for your lovely comment , the bit you mention is about loss at sea and how we feel open in the presence of nature

I'm sorry I don't understand Collects prayers and sweep seems wrong to me too.

Love the brevity and can almost feel the sea breathing in this.

well done David.

regards,

Graham
