Water of the Water

Day and night the Sea throws up froth.
You see the foaming surface, but not the Sea. Amazing!
We are clashing against each other like boats:
our eyes are darkened though we're in clear water.
Asleep in the body's skiff, we float,
unaware of the Water of the water.
The water has a Water that is driving it;
the spirit has a Spirit that is calling it.
