Up and Down and Swallowed by the Sea

Poetry from Postcards

A Diptych

Up and Down and Swallowed by the Sea

 

Ripples in Time

 

In nature there is nothing true

No straight line

Ocean and shore, wash

Against each other

No lines

A collection of curves

Shifting

Undulating

Rounded moments

Vanish

In the waves

 

Tall and Crooked

 

Jagged mountains fall

Pushed up

Then toppled

Wind twists-pries

Cold fingers into rock

Cracking open the crumbling beauty

The broken stone

The stricken faces

Spread

Scattered

In nature there is nothing fixed
