Whitecaps

Standard

Ocean Whitecaps by Wayne Logan

The whitecaps push
Away bad thoughts
The whitecaps
Pull the tension out
The whitecaps lull
The mind to peaceful rest
The whitecaps fold
Silent fears beneath their crests
The whitecaps tickle
At the shoreline rocks
The whitecaps laugh
And sing such lovely songs
The whitecaps coax
The sky to sleep
The whitecaps whisper
To the stars sweetest things

Surface Tension

Standard

Surface Tension, 2011 © Alexa de los Reyes

I am sometimes just so shallow
I can only sip so much
There’s only so much surface tension
Till I overfill my cup
Tears spill over
Streaming down
I try to breaststroke up
But how much love
Can one person give
Before drowning
Engulfed in an
Endless aqueduct?

Rain Barrel

Standard

I am weighed
I am water
I am 54%
I am teary
I am pouring
I am loud
I am running off
I am in the gutter
I am gushing
I am overflowing
I am rushing
I am exceeding
I am excessive
I am unconfined
I am boundless
Be my rain barrel
You’re firm, rigid
Hold me
Let me push against
Your form
You’re solid, steady
I yield my fluidity
Next to you
I take shape
You’re empty, dry
Let me fill you in
Drench you
Deluge you
Together let’s dive
Into fuller purposes
Together let’s sink
Into a pool of
Resolutions
Drip
Drop
Sploosh
