Sea and Stone

Sea and Stone

I am the stone—
rock steady.

              You are the current—
              perpetually in motion.

I am the shore,
folding and flexing
beneath your weight.

              You are the swells,
              rip tides and
              rogue waves.

I am the earth
you shape and
carve away.

              You are the tide
              leaving with the promise
              to return.

I am the land
you crash upon.

              You are the breeze
              that takes me away.
