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
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

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.
