Who are we
Walking along a
Sandy shore saying
We have never seen this ocean before
It behaves as any other

I linger behind
Looking out as far as I am able
The surf surrounding my feet
Sinking ever farther into the sand

You turn and smile at
The sun its rays
Sinking into the sand on a shore
An ocean’s world away
Where the minutes and hours and days
Continue passing

But we are unaware
Caught within the unceasing
Constancy of the ocean’s breathing
Yet we know how it is late and
Tomorrow we must be leaving.
