On the Horizon

August 22, 2014

The wave glimmers and waits.
So still, it could be nothing but dry earth.
Or, it could be an ancient statue—

To see through those stone eyes,
a galloping horse over a dry land mass,
a race to fulfil the sunlight’s challenge.

We say, ‘we’—to name the new creature.
We hear its thunder.
It is born. The first wave crashes.

Kowabunga.
