Silver Waves

The silver waves tower over me,

today and every day.

Their weight is unknown.

Sometimes far too heavy,

but other times light like

silver clouds before a needed rain.

Today I feel the weight.

The cold presence of their

sleekness overcomes,

and I know I have to give in.

I let the waves crash over me,

dance me around them,

over and under them.

I give in and I can feel the peace,

at last, I see that the waves

were never so heavy after all.
