Fearlessness of Waves

Tonight I thought of waves
and how they call out
patterns of the heart

sometimes quiet and then
suddenly passionate
rolling in sets
unexpected pounding on sand
that might prefer to be ignored.

an ocean dark and salty
sends forth
a simple wave that commits
to rushing to the shore
and with courage it bends

and hopes the land
might welcome its curl.
