The Waves Know My Name

May 7, 2018

On a recent writing retreat in the Donegal village of Gelncolumbkille I wrote this short poem in response to the sound of the waves I saw and heard every day. You can listen at this LINK

The Waves Know My name

On some sunny morning

Windless, almost

The sounds of the restless ocean

Reach up to me

Calling

The waves know my name

And call me

Unceasing, relentless

And I do not understand

Or will not

But the waves persist

Whatever message they carry

Never fading

One sunny morning

I may awake

And listen
