The Ocean of You Never Changes

The Ocean of You Never Changes

 

Look inside. You will see it’s true.

Even when you were very small, birds

held the same fascination for you,

the same deep song was playing.

 

A lifetime of thinking whips up a frothy scrim

to believe in from the angle of day-to-day striving.

From the deep center,

you can see right through to the sky.

 

You are not the sea grass pulled loose

and tossing on the foamy wave.

You are the wave and the ocean,

the infinite sky.
