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: 
My community
My country
Our world
