caught up
in the spell of moments

sunrise
is an incantation

of morning
a ritual turning of earth

we forget
the swell of time

that perfect or imperfect wave
we have no choice

but to catch or roll under

About Susan L Daniels

    I really like the surfing metaphor here. The waves come. They don’t ask first. 🙂
