The Ocean

The water holds me
lulls me
enwrapped in frothy motion
stretched across

my miles
pulled by the sway of the moon

from horizons
to the sights beyond my eyes

Bond of life
surrounds my islands
floods my stories
healing years
it pounds; it swirls
waves and glimmers
across the journeys

the fluid thread of
all that belongs to me

Liquid rhythm of life
