Can't Put the Pen Down…

My Brain (Part III)

Come close.
Put your ear next to mine.
Can you hear the sound of the ocean?
I can.

I hear waves on a beach I’ll never visit,
gulls on a horizon I’ll never see.
The trick is to not care anymore.
To let it trickle away
like the sand pulled backwards
by the surf.

Come close.
Put your ear next to mine and sigh.
I showed you my ocean,
now you show me yours.

    Beautiful. I love this one for its simplicity and for the images it induces. It’s up there amongst your best, and those last 2 lines are just exquisite.
