floating on warm currents
drifting in moonlight
waves pulsing in the heartbeat
of ocean
you are far from shore

knowing shore is out there
…just not realizing
how far current has carried you
at what angle…

this shore
looks nothing like
the one you left
…yet you walk back
on crystalline silicon beach
searching recognizable lights
to your temporary abode
parallel the vastness
of the dark whispering sea
without a sound
