Salt & Sky

Ocean

I am in love with Ocean

lifting her thousands of white hats

in the chop of the storm,

or lying smooth and blue, the

loveliest bed in the world.

In the personal, life, there is

always grief more than enough,

a heart-load for each one of us

on the dusty road.  I suppose

there is a reason for this, so I will be

patient, acquiescent.  But I will live

nowhere except here, by Ocean, trusting

equally in all the blast and welcome

of her sorrowless, salt self.
