Postcards from the Shore

Just as the wave
lifts itself
from the vast body
to assume new shapes
 

so we rise
to become what life
requires of us.
 

When the wind
drops
losing its fight
with gravity
 

the restoring force
returns us
to ourselves.

It is only now,
as the particles come to rest;
 

the charred remnants
of a shared life
 

settling
in the tarnished urn,
 

that I realise –
 

I did not expect you
at the wake
 

but instead
watched you slither away,
 

eased your passage even
 

agile invertebrate
wriggling off the hook
 

of your own morality.
