Enter the Tide

Breaking waves

howl slowly;

they rise, they dip,

a slow crisp

of light

hovers, then fades.

And then comes

the surging scream –

the small, silent serendipity,

that holds us down,

that  holds us together;

Like the invisible string

of lunar pull,

Like the One who beckoned

from the shore,

“Come, eat.”

Only this time,

I look away.

Meanwhile,

the tide

swallows another

breath

of the day.

Remember the Sky

See the moon

hanging up there,

all alone

in the black sky?

I had forgotten

it was there;

His pale. tilted orb

showing up

like a gentle reminder:

Beauty.

Art.

Mystery.

Science.

Worship.

Perhaps I should

look up

more often –

especially

when it’s dark.

Things Not Yet

If only

If only

If

Only I could

stop

wishing for things

that are not

or not

yet.

If only.

Another

voice shrugs

and asks,

“Yes, but

What then?”
