Ship

This being human is a Ship,

Traversing ocean swells,

Battered by storms,

Capsized by hurricanes.

Then finding safe harbour,

Gentle journeys through inlets,

Exploring coves and sandy bays,

Course at times easy found,

Other times navigation elusive.

Worried that the view,

Brings no sight of land.

Then times of peace,

With nothing in view,

Adrift in endless blue.

Written for dVerse prompt to write a metaphor poem starting ‘This being human is…’

Erosion

Energies ebb and flow

relentless surging

to and fro.

Precarious pivots

overwhelming

then abating

Constant movement

constant change

forces unrelent.

Slowly creating

smooth pebbles

from rough rocks.

Dance across the deep
