Into the Surf

The wind knows
Pushing me on
To places unknown
Sacred the sound
Standing on solid ground
A place I’ll never own

Watch the whispers
Coming tonight
Telling stories
Sharing story arcs
Shaped in the dark
Cut from the seven seas

Waking with wonder
I start again
Something hidden under
Taps on the window
Begging to be let in

The waves know
Pulling me in
To the dark undertow
Hallowed the heart
Healing the broken parts
A place I’ll never know

Wait for worries
Coming today
Telling me to hurry
Ticking every clock
The ringtone shocks
Midnight becomes blurry

I wake with thunder
Promising to start again
Something hidden under
Touches my pillow
Bolstering all my sins

Standing on the cliff
Diving into every what if
A dizzying way to live
I cut through the surface
Into the surf again
Waiting for that goodnight kiss

To wake with my blunders
I start again
To get out from under
All the weighty lows
Nipping at my shins

Waking with wonder
I start again
Something hidden under
Taps an open soul
Waiting to be let in
