a gift from the seas

troubled times,
filled with ties, tethered,
reminding me
of the weather,
when we
were once together

to take on
the pleasure,
while you listened
from far away, forever

hard to grasp, as
we watch
the grown grass

take its time,

towards the skyline…

will it
make it,
hard to define

unimaginable, yet
we find solace
in the curvatures
of the world’s futures

as they
come to fruition,
we pause,
breathe, reflect,
and protect
the actions presence, our
current sentence

as, I

for your hand
while we’re reminded
of the sun,
behind the trees,
hiding from you and me,
yet always present,
like a gift from the seas
