Traveling Sound

What oceans and linguistics have in common

Rippled waves arrive on the shore

and bring those stories from afar.

Embedded in each are thousands or more,

enunciating the coming of storms, silence, amor.

Rippled waves arrive at my ear

and bring your stories – from you to me.

Embedded in each are sounds so clear

enunciating at first, then they flee.

Rippled waves, embracing the sand,

they ebb and flow, they come and go.

Coming from The Other, from a different land,

they oscillate, but never ever interrupt the flow.

Rippled waves arrive with so much,

intimately interconnecting us for good.

They carry the weight of emotions and such

and inform us gently about one another’s mood.
