(Byron Bay, II.MMX)

THE WAVE

Once upon a time (II.MMV) I heard a wave that was saying:

AT FIRST IT IS A SHIVER OUT OF STILLNESS

A COMPELLING DESIRE TO MOVE

WAKING UP TO THE EXCITEMENT OF SSPEEED

SHAKING RISING HIGH TO THE SKY

MORE...MORE...

I CAN SEE THE WORLD NOW!

THEN I CURL,

A FEW DROPS RIPPLE...plum...plum

& I CRASH IN RRROARING FOAM.... ttrrrrruuuu....

TAKING ALL ON THE WAY

AM I THAT STRONG?

I PUSH TO THE SHORE...

A LITTLE MORE...MORE...

WHERE OTHERS CAN NOT GO!

I WANT TO TOUCH YOU DRY!!!

ONLY TO RETRIEVE

BLEND WITH THE INCOMING WAVES

& GO BACK TO DEEP OCEAN
