St. Raymond of Pennafort (Patron of Lawyers)

was there a moment before

you stepped onto the cloak

draped over the waves

where you thought

this sea will swallow me?

how did the ocean feel

rippling under the soles

of your feet?

did the salt stain your

poppy red cloak?

when you drifted ashore,

could you smell

all the miles you’d crossed,

all the schools of fish

who followed your light?
