Unbreakable Bond

I see the colorful rows of boats
weathered and coarse as
the shrimper’s hands holding
hot coffee in the hours before
the sun the motor softly
rumbling in the pitch of
the predawn oceanscape
A life of
wrestling
coaxing
blessing
the tempestuous lover
that is the sea
Never dreaming of
leaving her briny
loving
embrace
A study in
devotion
