Ocean by Mila

I am the ocean.
I wonder if the wind is going to blow over me tonight.
I hear the crunching sound of the dog walking across sand on a little island.
I see a black Labrador on the closest shore.
I want to talk to the grass and know what is going on.
I am happy with the clear skies.

I pretend that the sky can hear me.
I feel the dog on the island splashing in my waters. He is too far out from the shore. I want to help him, but I don’t know how.
I touch the beach of the nearest shore with my waves.
I worry that I will not be able to help the dog on the island get back to the land.
I cry out to the grass and finally get its attention.
I am lapping the shore, telling the grass about what it’s like under the sea.

I understand what the grass tells me, and I know how to help the dog on the island.
I say to the grass, “Thank you!” and I tell the dog that I will help him.
I dream up some waves, and I bring the dog back to shore.
I try to tell the grass “Thank you” again, but it is too busy talking.
I hope that the dog from the island is all right.
I am the ocean.
