I Need the Sea Because It Teaches Me
"I need the sea because it teaches me. I don’t know if I learn music or awareness, if it’s a single wave or its vast existence, or only its harsh voice or its shining suggestion of fishes and ships. The fact is that until I fall asleep, in some magnetic way I move in the university of the waves." Pablo Neruda
I first learned of this poem from a painting on our local elementary school's wall. I had to know more...and I found so much beauty in Neruda's words. Now I read them once a week along with Rumi and ee cummings. They all give me something for my soul.
