I Became The Sky

I could have stared at the sky for hours.

It was glowing.

Grey and orange; still against the crashing sea.

But it wasn’t the vision of the sunset that moved me.

It was the feel of it

within me.

So calm, I became the sky.

Peaceful.

Still.

And quietly waiting

for nothing at all.

The Ocean

Lay down beside me.

Run your fingers over mine in the sand.

Knot the long grass.

Kiss my warm cheek.

And when the sun sleeps

so will we.

Until the ocean wakes us.
