Ocean Silence

the silence of the ocean
clutches the cliffs
makes them bend to listen
seaweed drapes over sand
where sea comes to shore
one by one
sea comes to shore
in pulsating silence
while the sky sings of expanse
the seagull ventures
to the limits of freedom

upon a poet’s stool
along the beach
in Mexico
a human heart was the vehicle
beauty came riding in
and the day lit up like fire

beauty comes riding in
on a human heart
as that heart
is cruelty
which crushes itself
