Wilhelmina on the Water

Written for a friend I made through a creative collective: Constellation

Hello dear twin, 
Our suns seem 
to rise and set 
over vast expanses 
of oceans

Perhaps that 
is where our 
hearts truly 
come alive

There are 
mysterious oceans 
in my dreams 
and 
warm oceans 
under your board 
that neither of 
us ever want 
to leave

You rock to 
the rhythm 
of ocean waves, 
keeping time, 
ticking minutes 
in ebbs and flows

“Just one more” 
on an endless loop 
Just one more

Your body is 
a bright beacon 
of strength, which 
baffles those 
who look upon 
you from the 
distant shore

“Just one more” 
on an endless loop 
Just one more

And they stand 
in awe at your 
resilience
As the heat 
from the sun 
descends into 
a tropical night, 
the lookers-on 
wonder how you 
kept going, 
kept staying, 
kept saying

“Just one more” 
on an endless loop 
Just one more

They are not 
privy to our 
secret 
They do not
hear the call 
of the ocean’s song 
They do not 
go to the place 
where we play 
upon her 
salt water arms 
and listen to her 
stories

That is why 
we find it 
hard to leave her, 
so instead we 
sing along

“Just one more” 
on an endless loop 
Just one more
