Postcards from the Shore

wave2
 
 

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.

  1. I really love the phrase, “so we rise to become what life requires of us.” Beautiful, elegant.:)
