THE BLACK WAVE
Look, ocean indigo with anger,
ocean rising up into huge crests
which spew fury, ocean bellowing
at the thin-lipped land crouched
behind it. Look, clouds sweeping
through sky eager to marry these waters.
The black wave threatens annihilation
but in the fathomless dark something is stirring
and it fills you with wonder as you gaze
at the ceaseless seagull-white layers.
