Testing the Waters

by michaelcahill

you are lovely
lounging on the shore
gazing at two clouds

one over there

one aways away

they drift and entertain
the blue in the sky

some birds fly

some glide

none hide behind
though it doesn't matter

the horizon is far
and it comforts

you know much
about what lies beneath
the surface

the components of the deep


affecting another

and your test is ...

why is there a crack
at the bottom of the ocean

and where, oh where
did all the water come from?
