The primeval sea

sea of colour
Sea of colour, John Lyons (40 x 40 cm, oil on canvas)

The primeval sea

The primeval sea
           awash with colour
the underbelly
           of creation
whence all life
           whence all love

See how the light
           shimmers
on the shifting surface
           restless ocean
restless life
           colours that coalesce
wave upon wave
           here where the sun
sets and rises
           and where the surf
pounds on the shore
           so mimicking
the passionate pant
           of our human breath

John Lyons
