the waves

...and the waves – the swells ruthless,
ebbing eternally, delivering their tear-encrusted jewels
onto the coast.
beneath my feet,
i can hear the murmur –
a melody
of long-forgotten truths.
i plunge into
the profound,
the melancholy waters
and their promise of perpetuation.
i let the world become subdued –
save for the whispers
of water-sprites.
