Loud Moaning (Devotional Acrostic Challenge)

Week 6 prompt – Water, Sea, Storm Gods or Spirits

[For my Lady, Amphitrite, Queen of the Sea.]

Lady ruling the wide seas, Queen whose will is reflected in
Ocean waves, glorious and beautiful are You, Amphitrite!
Undines sing Your praises, and men falter,
Desirous of calm waters preceding Your arrival; they are
Merely current in a long line
Of very hopeful
Admirers!  Blessed Queen, take their praises and offerings,
Now, deep under, where You dwell
In company with the other
Nereids, and be merry, for Your happiness
Gives pleasure to all the creatures of the sea, and land, alike!

To Lord Poseidon…

Poseidon

Hail Poseidon, most venerable god of the waters
How the depth of the seas have pulled me toward You, yet again
How my eyes soak in the glistening sunlight, sparkling upon the water’s surface
Oh, Poseidon, Your laughter is deeply moving
Like waves undulating around the coast
You are pleased by the sight of me
Arms outstretched, giving salutations to You, oh watery King
I have missed the moist air
I have missed the salty winds
Once, I made my home upon the shore of Your domain
But now life has taken me to inland lakes, rivers and streams
Still, I honor You
Still, have I made the trek back to this place
Back to where the water meets the sun, and where both meet the land
I have traveled far to see You here
Even through piney woods which I had not known
Called forth to the ocean, by the ocean’s King
Always, I am drawn to the water
And always will I heed the water’s call
