turn of the tide

Turn Of The Tide

Turn Of the Tide

 

We will wait for the tide to turn.

It will carry us away

wave after wave

gathering up the debris 

which surrounds us

sucking it up like so much dust

getting rid of it all,

everything going

with the flow.

We must wait for the tide to turn.

It will bring us home

leaving new things

there with us.

Bits and pieces.

Leaving them for us to find

so that we can take 

what we need

everything

we want.

Or should we swim against the tide?

See where it takes us.

We could try.

It couldn’t be worse.
