Insurgent sea

The slumberous, midnight sea heaves
in a rhythmic undulation of atramentous silk;
beneath the vigilant gaze
of its empyreal guardians,
it thrashes and churns with defiant dreams of
conquering the night sky

– ❖ –

To quell the insurgent desire
of the envious waters below,
empyrean casts her brilliant starlight
upon its black, mirrored surface;
so the restless sea now dreams
that it’s already become her master
