On the day the sea was calm

A poem by Charlotte Fay

On the day the sea was calm

I stood in awe

Like a mirrored sheet

It seeped deep into my core

On the day the sea was calm

I could barely divert my eyes

Such a magnificent sight

Feelings of stillness and calm did rise

On the day the sea was calm

I didn’t dare look away

Of all the maliciousness I have seen

This could keep demons at bay

On the day the sea was calm

I wish you could see it too

Put down whatever you’re doing

Look out mindfully at the blue

On the day the sea was calm

We come together to celebrate

Mother Earth in her gloriousness

With us ready to cultivate

On the day the sea was calm

We realised what we needed to do

Cultivating actions of reduce, reuse, recycle

Before our time is through

On the day the sea was calm

We rejoiced at our wonderful earth

Spread kindness and cheer to all

And protected our place of birth
