Only When

Thu, 12/29/2016 - 14:15 -- Destcop

 

People as numerous as the sand

Their clamor muted

Only when the sun melts into the water

 

Only when the wave crash somehow louder

than the buzzing

of cars and voices

Leaving only the soul’s thoughts to immerge to the surface

 

The light sings across the water

As if to hush the worry away

 

But then all at once

The honking

The chaos

Floods back 

 

 

 

This poem is about: 
Me
My community
My country
Our world
