The Sea, Half-Held by the Night

"The Sea, Half-Held by the Night"  |  Anthony Satori

“The Sea, Half-Held by the Night”  |  Anthony Satori

“I am he that walks with the tender and growing night, I call to the earth and sea, half-held by the night… You, sea!  I resign myself to you… Sea of stretch’d ground swells, Sea breathing broad and convulsive breaths, Sea of the brine of life… Howler and scooper of storms… I am integral with you, I too am of one phase and of all phases.”

— Walt Whitman

O me! O life!

“Ocean Light”  |  Anthony Satori

“O me!  O life!  Of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless, of cities fill’d with the foolish — what good amid these, O me, O life?

Answer.  That you are here — that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.”

— Walt Whitman
