A Personal Ocean


A child fills the sails of his ship
With a gentle breath
In his bubbly ocean
Mighty storms and relentless quests
Valiant heroes and faithful crew
Battling villains
Exploring new lands
Imagine!
A sea of roaring waves
Mysterious dimensions
A fire burning of curiosity
Leads the child, a man
To the sea

Look!
Flat. Calm. Hazy air.
Grey-blue extension of land
Liquid over sand
No ship
No pirates
An adventure of the mind

He fades
Spirit of exploration
Dissolves with pale sky
Shadow on a beach
Rain mixed with sea
Undo to day-two
One line with light
Separate sea and sky
The dreams die

Mother pulls the plug
Lets the tub drain
Goodnight.
