"Eternity sweeps around me like a sea"
"The Brain is deeper than the sea"
"Blue Sea!Wilt welcome me?"
"It is a Suffering to have a sea-
no care how Blue-between your Soul-and you"
Her mystic metaphoric sea is no Melville nor Conrad-
Rilke-"The world is large,but in us it is deep as the sea"
Claudel"the eye of the earth,its apparatus for looking @time"
"The beginning of man was salt sea"(Charles Olson)
"I must go down to the sea again"(Masefield)
Mythically ,in 2012,we have a filmic franchise(Pirates of the Caribbean)
Sea Resorts(Dolphin World/Sea World)
Cruise Ships floundering off Italy/getting nanoviruses near New Orleans
Plastic Sargasso Seas permanent as death
Depletion of fish stocks/dolphins grounding on beaches
Whales competing with nuclear submarines
Metaphor has failed with icebergs breaking/glaciers split
Polar bears drowning in Coca Cola promotions
Ill oceans,fish stocks belly up /destitute fisherfolk
Sea shanties used to sing of dragons,krakens,sea monsters
Now they petition United Nations to stop piracy/refugees
No sea is free.
