A SONNET

SPRING AWAKES PATIENTLY, PERSISTENTLY

you have been to the beach many times through-
out your life. you have come to it for the            comfort
of lapping waves, for the warmth of the sun
to observe the choppy surface of                           a hidden world

today I want you to imagine this                           beach
this experience
will bring you a stillness and balance
which you have never had before

descend to the beach silently; search out
for a piece which suits your abilities
to lift and carry, a piece which suits

your body. find its center. hold it close.
hold it with one hand. thrust a point into the sand.
find balance, stillness                                         staring over the sea
