Blue-Green Compass. ~ Laura Kutney {Poem}

I sail towards enduring gestures of the sea

Unwavering ebb and flow

Celebrating each brilliant silver moon phase of

Eternal and irrefutable episode of tide

Keeping time of moments and eras alike

 

Within the sea, detectable and unrevealed elements

Of imminent shoreline and enduring deep waters

 

Infinite polished granules make the sandy terra firma

Shaped by eons of abounding wave surges

Made over, and over, and over, and over, and yet once more over again

Each wave unique

Never repeated

 

Beautiful colors and light dancing on the water’s surface

Appearing serene upon the horizon, yet a raucous line where sea and shore meet

Beneath the calm distance and dynamic swells

Dwell secrets kept from those above

 

Now moving past the edge of the water and wading in waist deep

Beyond threshold of sand, luminous azure blue swells and frothy foam

Into the gritty, underwater terrain of nomadic sand crabs

I burrow my feet and curl my toes into their shifting homes

Strengthening and bracing myself in my mysterious aquatic bath

 

Unbending, I wait

One, two waves

I hold steadfast

A third wave reaches out and then withdraws

White spray, grainy sand and salty water mixing into my nose, eyes and mouth

The salty tears of the sea are realized

 

I recognize myself as a grain of sand

Dependant upon receiving equal tumble and polish of my body, mind and spirit

 

Each of life’s moments

Weathers my soul

Into the person I am becoming

About Laura Kutney

Laura often looses herself in thought. This, combined with the fact that life is ever-changing, leaves her with plenty to write about.
