Today

teaspoon

today i am an ocean

in a teaspoon

on the bench

 

Today

I am an Ocean

an endlessly fluid expanse.

And on the shores, I’m a-wake;

thin offerings tempered by warm sand

so as not to offend your toes

as you wade in safety.

 

Today

I am an Ocean

an endlessly fluid expanse.

With rolling surf and tepid pools

to delight and amuse the masses

I’ll carry you, buoyant and supine,

just to watch the sunlight in your eyes.

 

Today

I am an Ocean,

an endlessly fluid expanse,

with depths in which you drown your sorrows,

tears lost, awash, amongst my own.

Enveloped, cradled in jaded arms,

survival is not guaranteed (or always wanted).

 

Today

I am an Ocean

an endlessly fluid expanse,

with darkness enough to lose your mind (or find it),

home to creatures fearsome and ravenous

and luminescent critters that defy death

to thrive in abysmal hostility.

 

today i am an ocean

in a teaspoon

on the bench

 

Inspiration: Today I found it in a teaspoon of water on my bench after reading these articles.  I was struck by the contrast of one single thing being both big/powerful and small/insignificant and the same time.
