tsunamis

somewhere so far deep beneath
there’s a subtle seed now sown
in a single silent sound
sending swells, their sights unknown
 
surreptitiously they swim
sweeping through the body’s core
softly stirring shallow stills
by some quiet, lonely shore
 
slowly slips serenity
into measured motion
as the surface shroud recedes
laying bare the ocean
 
all its essence, life, exposed
causing precious breath’s escape
tension in the balance builds
growing in both size and shape
 
rapid as the heartbeat climbs
suddenly the wave will rise
fate proceeding on beside
cresting as her spirit flies
 
toward each consequence alone
time and place await unknown
there deciding what will be
as she washes over me.
