STILLNESS


forgetting his confused cycle of life
stuck in quiet introspection
beyond the sea beyond the boat
sinking but not defeated
in an ocean torn with rife

remembering his lost voyage
perplexed by the moment
beyond the sky beyond the shore
stuck but not ruined
on a beach without floatage

listening to poems of the sea
grounded in stillness
beyond silence beyond death
wrecked but not broken
standing with friendly sand flea

thank goodness for friendly sand fleas...i like your acknowledgement of the circumstances but the willingness to see beyond them and not lose the moment

Excellently expressed. As long as there's a friend, it's okay.

Glad to learn the sand fleas were friendly; I've known some that weren't. :-)
