Aqua

A Free Verse Poem

the ocean a stand in for a thousand things I want to say to you

the sea a million twinkling metaphors

the waves crash in ways that imagination cannot predict

their foam reminds us of all that we have loved

There’s no way to sink into the depths without density,

but you can be dissolved by lack of resolve.

And though gulls may soar overhead,

I pray that choose you stay in the water

There are twists and tumult in the oceanic depths,

but I dwell in the deep as well.

I hope that you will find me there.
