~An Other~

Father Song

Standing the shore
arm around my son
the Pacific Ocean, California
licking our boots
a long way from Colorado
his sister, my daughter
thousands of miles away
just there in Hawaii
heart of earth
ocean of blood
veins of universe
a sweet instrument, life
is it music

The tide reminded me
its incessant roar
falling, growing, becoming
of a power so much
stronger than myself
impossible to get my arms around
yet a reach I was impelled
to breathe for
to live for
to die for
feet wet, blood pumping
ecstatic, howling
a nuance of knowledge
water sea
river, rivulet
it is as my children to me
