Ebbing Tide

We can save our love
We still have the time
There must be a way
We still haven’t tried
To keep our hearts from breaking
Everytime two fools collide.”
– fr. lyrics of ‘Everytime Two Fools Collide’, Kenny Rogers

(When we, at times collide…)

(… like sub-atomic particles in fission
we generate tremendous energy-heat
when we smash together in clean collision –
a fusion no nuclear reactor can beat.)

Ebbing tide now beckons humbly
to us like the failing wishes in our
confused hearts.  The outgoing waters
entreat to our furtive longings
as timid seagulls depart, leaving us
in endemic silence to lick our wounds.
Right or wrong, our blemished souls
are left scarred,

fading with the tide…

– between
altar and alter
is ebbing tide.

– between
raving raven and seething seagull
is revving pride.
