The Way Forward

 I wish to be like the sea,
formidable without intention.
I shall come and I shall go
and with me I will bring happiness
so crackpot simple, it cannot be second-guessed.
So too abiding loss to drown the heart.
A thousand times I will promise intoxication
without as much as a word.
When I roar, I will be heard -
colossus without mercy, watery impasse.

And all the time,
I shall not have once thought about it. 

 Loveliest thing I've seen and heard in a while. Thanks KK.

The sea has been a sort of muse for as long as I can remember. I think this is a lovely expression of what it can do.
