Taken with the Google Pixel 2 near Arbroath, Scotland
And now I've seen the ocean
One small part my gaze could fit
And wondered how far it goes

The waves hold no answer
They only flow on
The gulls call as always

The ships in turn and anchor
Have seen much
And go farther without me

The white lines that crest waves
Show me like a map
The way the ocean moves

By crest and wing and iron
And I, this one small part,
Here to see and find and yearn

But in all this unanswering
I think I felt the truth
Of how far the ocean goes
