my mother is a whale she rules the ocean
my father is the wind that seeks the northest place and comes back east every winter
and then there’s me.
a message in a bottle that resides in a beach
its sand a warm kiss of the sun
and the waves come like a song and I dance
I dance to the edge of its embrace.
until there’s you.
a sailor in the night sky you sail the water all alone
and the sea turns a chapel
and the weather’s a deep hush
and I yearn. still I yearn
for your rain to come
