Invocation to Bara

Hail, Lady of the Big Wave,
The tsunami that crashes into the shore,
The endless lapping of the sea as it devours
Sand, earth, stone, even mountain.
You are determination itself, Bara,
Ready to take a million years
To grind the earth back down into the sea
From whence it came so long ago.
With the splash of a whale’s tail, you smile,
You tell us that your whales were once land-dwellers
And changed, and this too could be us
If we had only gone forward with our transformation
Instead of haring back to the ugly brown place
After only a few million years of ocean.
Lady of the Big Wave, have patience with us,
Help us to achieve determination as great as yours,
And grant our home at least a few more
Millennia beneath our feet.
