The Ocean is Salty Enough

The Ocean is Salty Enough

So willful
The water, cold…
Receding,
Leaving me reeling and exposed.
And no matter how firmly I cling to crevices
Rock climb and sand sink
Wish upon a far off star…
I understand that some things are simply stronger than me.
Besides, I always hated tug of war.
So, I surrender.
Sweet suction release…
Tumble me gently out to sea.
Glide me under moon glow
Closed eyes trap tears…
The ocean is salty enough.

  1. Imaginative dreamy painting… coupled with dreamlike verse… and yes… the ocean is salty enough… I like the imagery of the trapped tears. I hung on that awhile. Really good Shell.
