Our Ocean

October 3, 2008
By Lily Muskovin, Chicago, IL

I long for you
like the pine tree for sleep
evergreen
an endless stream


or the ocean
salty to the taste
but there is sweetness

beneath salt



drop a thousand words
loneliness is mute
speech ingrained

in spray
time intangible

seconds




minutes






hours

meld in sea





possibility
