Changing Tides

Another one for Go Dog Go Cafe’s #ThrowbackFriday. This is a poem from 2016.

Friday Fictioneers May 27.png

Because even the most jagged rock

is smoothed in time, burnished by tumultuous seas

and polished by gentle waves that follow,

I will wait on salt-sprayed shores

Because even the most fierce storm

is spent in time, stripped by prevailing winds

and dissipated by soft rains that follow,

I will stand beneath threatening skies

Because even the most well-planned voyage

is rerouted in time, upended by rogue waves

and delayed by recovery that must follow,

I will sail in rough water

Because today the sun shines bright and

offers promises of peaceful tomorrows

I will surrender to each changing tide
