Ashore Again

New Horizons

Bobbing
A sailboat 
Swoosh
The wave folded over it

Bobbing
A sailboat
Swoosh
The seagull’s wing
In a close fly-by

Bobbing
Me
Across the rolling waves
Offered by life 

Swoosh
Another day has passed
And I still float in Perpetuum
Just at the cusp of a breaking wave

There is stillness

On hold
For an entire moment

Until it all crashes ashore
Sharp stones cutting into the soles of my feet

Swoosh
Another wave folds over me
Pushing me further ashore
Onto soft sand
Gleaming white in the sun

Startled I look around
A new path emerges to blinking eyes
Leading over sand-dunes
Beyond which I cannot see

But the sailboat lies broken
Capsized

Swoosh
Another wave
The boat washes into the sea

‘Okay then’, I think

Auf zu neuen Ufern
