Sitting
by the shore
watching
footsteps
walk by,

some feet
linger longer
deepening craters
as waters
recede,

impressions
of a moment
lived
in this time
this place,

And I wonder,

does
the sand beneath
feel
the happy ones
from the sad,

the difference
between those
that are good
and those
labeled bad,

the weight
of those
that are rich
and of those
that aren’t,

Thoughts
interrupted,
by a
thoughtless wave,
which
for my questions,
doesn’t seem
to care,
it fills up
all the holes,
equally,
and as it recedes,
in the evenness
of what
it leaves behind,
I surprisingly find
all the answers
bared.

  1. Very nice, in metaphor and in life. Strange as it all is, I think the land also absorbs to the vibrations of its cultures. I think I’ve made mention of it, here or there, but it’s one of my Wild Theories (I think I still need to write it up).

      1. Thanks! I’m actually not the only one who ever thought so. Queen Helena of Constantinople marked out what she thought were sites significant to Christianity in Israel by the same process — feeling the aura of the past, in the atmosphere and walking the ground to feel it.

        And, yes — poetry books by you would be wonderful!
