An ocean ahead, strangely silent
While my own self rages over…
Your stillness bothers me,
And I am concerned…
Dear deep waves, are you in distress?
Your memories hold my music
Youthful and resonant, you held my rhythm
Now, my voice wavers, my music falters
Yet it prevails till I am humanely able
So wake up, from this stillness…
For I offer you my parting music
And I need you to remember this too
Along with all of me, even what is forgotten…
Wake up now, mighty ocean
To my music, my voice…wake up!!!
(A Freeverse written for Sadje’s What do you see #84)
