Restless Sea

it’s big

and deep

impossibly big

unimaginably deep

this ocean

in which I find myself

treading water

all alone

hoping against hope

to be discovered

saved

rescued

before I succumb to hypothermia

or get eaten by sharks

or die of starvation

or simply drown

lost and alone

helpless

hopeless

homeless

in a tumultuous sea

that swallows me

and will not spit me out

      • we’ve all been there, Ed; it will pass: soldier on,keep writing 🙂

  3. Thanks, John. I know. Just… in all my years the duration and intensity has not been like this. But, yes! I like that – “soldier on.” Nothing for it but to do so. The feather-laden ice cream helps. 🙂
