Poem: The Wave

 

 

THE WAVE

 

By David Andre Davison

*

I start in the clouds,

in the form of rain or snow.

Seeking out siblings in the ocean,

down on the surface below.

*

I move across the sea,

with help from a gentle breeze.

If I travel up north,

the cold will make me freeze.

*

Maybe I’ll venture down to the tropics,

where the weather is sunny and hot.

The trade winds set the course,

as this wave, helps a sailing yacht.

*

Then the storms seize me,

a strong typhoon, or hurricane.

To the coastline they send me crashing,

causing destruction, torment, and pain.

*

Don’t blame it on me, the wave,

as I gently roll across the sea.

I can’t help the forces of nature,

nor the effects of gravity.

*

I am the same wave,

a surfer rides to the shore.

Or that tickles a child’s toes,

sending them back in for more.

*

The sea knows no country,

no government or race.

It moves to and fro,

filling up any empty space.

*

A wave is random,

following wind and tide.

Going anywhere it’s sent,

 lacking the power to decide.

*

I love my life of adventure,

floating across the giant sea.

Visiting many new places,

being so wild and carefree.

*

The next time you visit,

the coastline or shore.

You’ll be mesmerized by me,

cause that’s what I’m here for.
