Blue, The Almighty


Blue, The Almighty 

by Alan Valdez


Wide, deep, and blue..

You rush to shore expanding your reach, 

You meet resistance from sturdy rock and mighty tree

Pull… push.. but crash

Slowly you pull back 

Walking away with an exhausted will

It’s alright, you must rest

Fall in love with trying,

Before an eternity

You will push and meet sturdy rock and mighty tree

one more time,

Wide, deep, and blue..

You rush to shore expanding your reach,

You meet resistance from a sturdy rock and a mighty tree

Pull… push.. but crash 

Ready to weep and walk away 

Never to be seen 

The sky roars,

And the anger strikes,

A static dances, scurries on the surface of the body of blue 

You rush the shore and push

Not expecting victory

Cracks and crumble are heard

Feeling your own might in victory 

Calm and silence..

Tomorrow the mighty blue will return,

Doing what you love, you take a piece of the wooden giant that lies in defeat 

The rock reduced to sand, dispersed
