#NaHaiWriMo 2017 – day one

wave after wave
wind rises from a whisper
to full throated roar

wave gives birth to wave
absorbs all things great and small
gives birth to a new thing

wave upon wave
everything churning
the waters muddy

wave over wave
i am carried back and forth
my feet without purchase

wave chases wave
gravity’s inexorable pull
the shore is a dream

waves become wave
becomes a wall – all that weight
pressure blankets me

wave seeks its freedom
braces itself against me
the spray an entreaty

this is the wave
it is neither friend nor foe
this is the wave
