January, Los Angeles
Love / Time

Rain on the Sea

 

 

The gulls hush themselves and lower their heads

 

stand one-leggéd on the shore while the sky fills

 

round the waves’ rounded edges round more fade

 

into the fullness of the soft and steady sound of water

 

is all the same as the light unchanging with sameness

 

egoless rain disappearing in the sea as the sea disappears

 

in the rain the face you have forgotten over and over until even the forgetting is forgot.
