Poems and Prose

Motion

Caught unexpectedly,
Ripped
From there
The safety of shore.
Swept up
In a sea
Of doing, seeing, feeling
Being.
The Horizon distorts
As waves crash,
Submerging each
Into the unknown.
Light merged with dark
Sky seen beneath,
Tossed and turned
Mixed in the swell.
Fighting for breath
For life,
We float
On the ripples
Pulled by the moon.
Surrendering
Embracing, indiscriminate motion,
With faith
Movement will one day guide
Us forward
Towards dry land
To calm.

  1. Such a strong sense of motion and moving forward in this, love it. I particularly liked the lines ‘The Horizon distorts / As waves crash, / Submerging each / Into the unknown.’ Really evocative. Thank you so much for sharing with #ThePrompt x
