Secret of Calm
I get hit with a massive wave
like a brief tsunami
... sometimes not so brief...
a rumbling under the surface
shaking the ocean floor.
or perhaps a shift towards a greater equilibrium.
The ocean below sends a signal:
THIS is unfinished
so tend to it
and pay attention,
because it remains unsolved.
and every heart beat that sends currents of blood through my body
and waves of thought into my mind
and breath of life into my chest
reminds me of this force of nature that has no reckoning
administering a pulse, a shockwave
a reminder of the longing.
The vast, dark, imperceptible depths can't conceal
what exists within my essence
as if to whisper through trans-continental winds,
