Ebbs of Wonder

Sometimes when I sit
before the ocean,
my mind stretches
across surprising worlds,

flecks of blue, tidbits
of sorrow as my dog’s
ears hear my internal
whispers for a budding

tomorrow, nestled inside
the branches of yesterday,
stretched across the perimeters
of a bird’s wing span

and wonderings about
how to fly, as poets
try to figure out which
word to pluck from their

confused bucket and drop
into the medley which
one day in their dreams
will blossom into a verse.
