TIDE

Held by the sun spinning
to roll with the moon
recurring intervals of moods
trends that draw, to later flow
open and receptive, options
like water, flooding the basin
later exposing the rocks
then again, the empty space is filled
opportunities of favorable occurrence
present themselves in tides
as we wait at the dock
for ballast to float, before we set out
