Blue Waters the Sky – a poem by Dah

Blue Waters The Sky

The oceans remember
us, moving
to the shore
waves and more waves

The sand is silent
like a still-breath
holding the ribs
a body of saline
and footprints

There are waves
that do not survive
their shallow ending
in a stitch of sand and salt

against the shore
I step
into the sea
and I am

a light wind, light touch
blue waters the sky
We come from this
and still
we are nothing

but this feeling
this moment
the end that begins
