Our past contains our essence
to be manifest in our future
as from the depths of the sea
a quaking earth produces a giant wave
that moves, the swell of desire
carrying it, unchecked towards shore
where it becomes a towering wall
of water that finally breaks
in a violent un-remittent force
of turgid boiling frigid froth, crashing
breaker,  at last to seethe on land
upon the outstretched margin
of battered and broken quartz sand.
