A brave old wave


We are moving forward

in a line of time,

each one of us different,

but together we are all the same.


Ahead of us

the wave is dissipating,

energy spent,

momentum soaked up

by the earth-dark shore.


Behind us a new wave

is swelling, raging

with force and power,

behind us,

driving us.


Soon we will break

and loose

our accumulated lives.

But for now,

we are cresting

with the finely balanced power

of battered, yet joyful,

hurt, but healed

triumphant lives.
