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.
