Current Events [repost]

beach ocean sand surf waves rocks

Swirling under a butter sun,
Languidly I become
One with the current,
Ever circling.
This luminous pool,
Loops through my lazy reverie.
Vaguely aware I am losing
Some essential identity,
A separateness
That makes me, me,
I vow to forsake this place.
Yet the heady siren’s call
To blend into the cool blue thrall,
The glassy-eyed sameness,
Whispers my name.
I know a belonging
Even while longing
To stand alone and free,
Without worrying whom to please.
But which path to peace?


Inspired by Rory’s sheeple post.
