Ocean Verse

Ocean Verse

seeking the skies below

on a solo powered flight

as jagged air

meets gentle dust

she flies


protected like a

pinecone in a purse

between cerulean

highs and goodbyes

she sinks


curving to the water’s feet

every energy is reversed

in this place she’s forever seen

but could never uncover

she calls

the vital force

becoming her own wave

crash-testing the outside

the seraphic octopus songs

bubble her to low tides

all legs on the electric lawn

she lands

the ocean verse…
