I looked out into the endless sky that met with the sea
And wondered if perhaps the sky
Might have swallowed the sea,
Or perhaps the Sea was devouring the sky.
And I wondered what the navigators of ships of old
Must have thought as they witnessed
This incredible sight.
Did they fear closing on the horizon only to find
It expanding beyond their imagination?
Did they begin to question where daylight began and night fell?
Did they wonder
About the birds above?
Were they falling from the ocean?
