To Ran

Ran, Seaborne Lady
Mother, Protector, Provider, Muse
In stillness you calm the fury of my soul
In darkness you sing me to sleep with your waves
In moonlight you dance temptations rival 
beneath Mani's beguiling gaze
Your power humbles me
Your beauty awe's me
Your secrets beckon me
Your spirit embraces me
Dangerous in motion, safety when at peace
Your power lies hidden behind cove, harbor and reef
Tendrils of magic, like seaweed you wind
Siren song to your children you weave, twist and twine.
Your bosom my shelter, my comfort, my grave
For all this I praise you, Fair Ran of the waves.
