thunder

it knows nothing about these frightening facts,

the ocean:

utterly oblivious, it is a daily marionette to the moon,

a constant carrier of massive amounts of plastic and trash,

the eternal exile for refugees,

(lacking smooth sailing conditions or the provision of a whale).

it knows nothing about its power

being used and abused

on- and off-shore

for wrongful doings

by people and for politics.

this season, though, its waves are mercilessly mounting

day-by-day, eventually lashing

at any limb or object ashore.

white foam rims its gorge;

its thunder drowns out all speech,  song or sound.

it is finally time to wonder:

is this it,

is this enough?

when does respect for the vast and mighty return

and humble

our lost and greedy souls?
