shoreline I

at the shore
doesn’t require a cushion or bells
nor dark robes or dead rites

here, the posture is one
that melts
surrendering countless failed attempts
at holding back tides

it’s the one that says
“you already have me,
I am already yours.
Take me home  
to lose myself a million times,
and million times more”
