for you

how the sea laps around my legs
salt caking blisters
saline kisses to my skin

the ocean is an anchor
belaying sound, pulling it deep
carrying it far away

if i call, will you hear?
my voice will fall through deep water
until it reaches you
your ankles
waiting in the surf
and my words will bounce up
like so many water droplets

but when it is summer here
and the water welcoming
winter snows fall about you
and feet would never make it
to the sea

a world apart
like lone whale song
none shall ever hear it
yet still i shall sing
for you
just in case
