washed out to sea


under a spring moon
i see you dancing
silently under the water
10,000 strong
washed out to sea
your spine rides the pacific currents
like a sinuous reed
the song escaping your mouth
is silent
like a tsunami rising
above the earth


you were a child
your hair black
flows outward
into the water
you were a daughter
your hand suspended
reaches out for your mother
you were a grandmother
your hair flows
all around you
like a halo
you were a father
your eyes are black
and luminous
10,000 stars
the night
