The Wave Breaks

The wave breaks
on the shore
and rolls out as


life pauses for a moment
before continuing undisturbed;
the sea the master of its own destiny.


The wave breaks,
the world keeps on turning
regardless of the time or place


and where you and I are,
without a thought for the absurdity
of this thing we call life.


The wave breaks
as the sailor out at sea is rocked to sleep,
lulled into a sense of security.


He is alone, far away from anything
that might be called civilisation,
but he is at home.


The wave breaks
upon the shore
where I stand


feet buried in the sand
listening to the sound of water
rolling back and forth


as nature intended,
and I, I finally feel at one,
here on this beach, hundreds of miles away
where I stand alone.
