Tsunami HiroshiSu

(September 15,1996 / Fort Collins, Colorado)

The Sea


A breath
She lays the world upon an elbow
Gazing out upon the blue
Waves endlessly turning
Her coffee getting cold resting on a saucer
As she traces infinity in grease on the Formica
And the waitress snaps her gum and watches the woman
Her far off look
Unseeing
Looking out to sea

Maybe she watches for a lover
She waits for a storm
She drowns her prayers in solitude
She thinks lonely thoughts

And the breakers crash against the cliffs
Below the diner
And she sighs again with listless longing
Looking for what the sea has taken from her

She shakes herself and rises
Drops coins beside her untouched coffee
Gathers her belongings
Leaves the window
Goes about her day, but all the while

Thinking on the sea

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
