a poem by Kaylin Lemajeur,
Director of Research & Written Expression
To welcome 2023, Water& features an original poem that offers an opportunity to reflect and honor Water.
A cerulean seascape wakes
to a rising sun,
who sings a sweet good morning
to waves of layered blue.
Sherbet sun rays
drip onto cartwheeling waves
that settle into sand handshakes ashore.
The salt-sprayed coast stretches
into a bending horizon --
an embrace of the ascending sun.
Breezes from the East unleash
a harmony spun fresh
from the beaks of shorebirds,
coalescing into a call of home.
We are in the morning of our year.
An invitation for reacquaintance,
to rejoice again in the rhythm
of the rising tide.
