waves of hope


I woke up to find the sea
And learned it was already
Within me
Weeds tangled through my hair
Flowing
Going
I know not where
Salt and sand
Upon my lips
Neptune had given me
A kiss
The waves did roll
Through my own heart beating
I watched the cycle
It began repeating
A sea lion’s nudge near my thigh
My paddle raised
Up high, up high
I am not here to conquer the sea
I am here
To set me free.
