Unassuming currents
Soft flow and shallow clip
Docile streams
Unweighted dreams

The vessels know well
Not to compare

The sea
Mighty, enticing
Subject of songs and
Legends both
The calling on the heart
Unmet desire

The banks before
Merely springboards for the mind
Though teeming with life
Loving and kind

What rivers so close
So overlooked
What seas so distant
Keeping hearts and hands captive

I’d rather swim in the real
The fresh water current to feel
Than long for the deep and the salt.

Delusions of grandeur grating action to a halt.
