The Vaster Sea

by mistersoto

The Vaster Sea

Expands on contemplation
Its aquamarine
Waves, lapping
I stare out across
An unending
Field of water
Undivided, blanketing all
Its vast indifference
Threatens to swallow
Tribulations

Beneath the sky
Distantly
At the horizon
As clouds blow above
Across
Its surface
A lone bird
Gliding lowly
On a grey day
Where will it land?

In the immensity
A naked swimmer
Emerges
Pauses
Takes breath
Scans for bearings
Inhaling
Plunges on
A grey day
When will he arrive?
