At Sea

I must have spent lives,
long ago,
on the sea or in it.
A slave rowing
A captain sailing
A fisherman angling
A mermaid creating
Mythical aquatic life.
Considering my Irish heritage,
A selkie shedding my sealskin
To walk as human upon the shore.
Or maybe I started
On a lake
A pond,
A river,
A creek,
A tiny stream,
Flowing from somewhere
That flows to the sea.
I know has been a very long time
Living and Loving the sea.
