I Am Here

I am the wave that reaches
for the sky.
I yearn to be free
upon
the rocks. They beckon to me,
day and night.

I am the ocean, vast and powerful.
I greet
the mighty rivers,
and we celebrate
and mourn
the end of their wondrous journeys.
We roar
with laughter
and I dissolve their tears.

I am the wind that never rests.
I hold the waves
in my embrace
and we love one another,
and dance together,
late
into the moonless night.

I am yearning. I am freedom.
I am bondage and I am joy. I merge and I separate. I change every day
and yet
I never do.

Come sit by me and watch. Drop the veil and listen.
Feel.
Like no one's there.
You can tell me your story and I
will tell you mine.
