Poem: So much remains

January 1, 2018

So much remains

It mounts on the seashore
Forms crusts in cave arks you cannot see
It does not disappear with time
Like the elders promised

It lives in the water
A baptism of paper cuts 
Separating you from your skin
With every breathing wave

You are losing yourself 
In the folding water
The deepness of it muffles your voice 
Honours you with lazy bubbles 
Brewing at the surface

For stillness, for pure water 
You nightly pray 
I hear each word

So much remains
