Staying

The rhythm of
coming round
of the lighthouse beacon,
longer than the human
breath, is the message
of standing tall, prevailing,
by the sea—who offer,
her many moods, assaults
and soothings—it goes on,
unperturbed, unperturbable.

Awe

Awe

Out with a friend in his little fishing boat,
not fishing,
we’re enchanted by a morning cruise
of a tiny rocky inlet of the sea
where the water is turquoise and calm,
and right before us looms
a world wonder in pink
that shrinks our significance
to the likes of two small words
on a capsule easily swallowed.
