FOUNDATION

Dense form development, word order
in a dream, founding being in decision
only we can may must make. Courage to
unite life’s turns to go on building, laying
deeper foundations upon sequence
of events on another, depositing weight
of years accumulated in sea surge waves
of sand current drifted bands over laden
against a tidal restlessness, learning later
the position of each word, each crystal
designing the final epitaph of this sojourn.
