The sea is gentle today

The sea is gentle today,
rolling its satin skin,
feathering the breeze
with a benevolent kiss.
We invade it with our prow:
tilling it in our passing
with a temporary furrow
and frothy veins.
Generously it takes no offense
and reclaims its harmony
when we are gone
on our sullying sortie.
We leave no lasting memory
on its forgiving surface
this gentle sea
of latent power.
