the quiet of water (20171031)

i bury myself in beach sand
begging the tide to come in

this is cleaner than a funeral

no open grave for grieving
relatives to fall into
not need to rent a backhoe

no need for mourners at all

the sea provides the tears
the waves–sobs
the wind–sighs of loneliness
the gulls–shrieks and laughter

  1. So funny – the thought of grave tumbling mourners got me. Definitely a cleaner and easier way to go, but could you really cope with the laughing/ mocking gulls?
