Because We  Are Water

Because We Are Water

by brian michael tracy
Enjoy Art | Poetry


Out on the horizon you can see the waves.

They play with one another as brother and sister

conceived from the same watery womb.

Once at shore they close their eyes and fall

leaving passion and foam behind for the others -

those running in polka-dot suits

blue shovels in hand

knees and toes in mud

running at the waves and their rhythm

their coming and going

going and coming

at their feet beyond their feet

then back again.



Standing knee deep in its clammy calm

with their polka dots and blue shovels

they seem to understand the ocean’s ardent returns

for they themselves are water

because they too feel the pull of the tides -

they too shall be forever caught

between the seduction of the horizon

and a strange devotion to shore.
