our one-room peninsula

you have the audacity
to thrust into the sea
and stay still within her
though her raging flays you
her relentless tides wash you away

  1. You said a lot briefly and left it open to interpretation. Isn’t it amazing how the readers get something different from what is written, cause not all our experiences are the same. The readers bring their own meaning to the poem so that what you speak speaks volumes. (Did that make any sense at all?)
