Unadorned Underground

In the depths

Where the colors all bleach

To the basics

Of power,

Persistence,

And life;

Lives the unadorned

Underground

Of deep water

Carving canyons

With time’s old

Stubborn knife.

Make a splash

Face the turmoil

Don’t let the surf

Turn you back.

Hold on tight

To your courage

Let waves become

Your heart’s soundtrack.

Still they strive

Strain to grow

Stretch to touch

Yearning so.

Almost there

But not quite

Only five

Thousand years

Till they finally

Hold hands.

Undulating Resolve

When resolve wobbles,

When your heart

Worries at

Goals

And your fingers

Forget

Their own

Flow –

Recall how

Every wave

Oscillates

To and fro,

How

The ocean

Itself

Undulates

Onto each

Remote

Shore.
