a thousand little cuts

how long is the wave
just reaching land
starting buried deep
far beyond the break

they say some anger has a long fuse-
welling and building
biding time until
it pounds fists
against the pilings
crashes furiously
onto the sand

but
I’ve watched the little wavelettes
lapping against the beaches
slowly nibbling away
at self
and at shore.

    Whimsy,
    I hope you start posting regularly again… You have great expression. I’ve been away for a good long while and am starting to work back in to writing poetry and reading / posting here on WP again. I hope to keep it going and hope you can find time to do the same.

    Peace,

    Stephen
