Graham Nunn

measuring the depth

the ocean's landscape is raw, its endless cycle continually giving and receiving new life. this is a landscape that needs no fence. no storm can dim its surface, no man can shape its beauty, no passing of time can defile its myth. it is ageless, despite its constant ripples. i have stood here every year and looked into its mirror, to measure the depth of my nature. its certainty always assures me.

another year older
and the waves
keep on coming
