A Thousand Nows
the sea, with unemotional motion, in waves unwavering,
spiriting ephemeral impressions from beneath my feet,
secreting steps I have walked to arrive at a thousand nows.
its endless erasure leaving no trace along the sands of time,
of where the beginning began, of where the end begins.
the ocean, unremitting, washing away footprints forever, now.
