I Am

I am the deep blue sea
Surrounding and embracing you

I am the eastern wind
Carrying the breath of life

I am the green earth
Providing everything that you need

I am the northern lights
Showing you the way

I am the open hand
Reaching out to you

Written May 27, 1997.

I'm not entirely sure what this poem is about. It started with the lines:
"I am the eastern wind"
"I am the northern lights"
and grew from there. I think that I ended up writing it as a kind of religious poem.
