The oceans call to us
Like sirens on the waves
And we listen
Waiting to return
To those primordial waters
That birthed us
Pulling ourselves up, out
To stand upon solid land
Damp red clay
Dark rich earth
Clover blossoms caught between our toes
As we search for a way back to those pliant shifting waves
But children grow up, leave home
You can never go home again
Only make one where you are
There’s no escaping you
And where you are
