A Poem by Theresa Hamman

Point Lobos

 

We leaked out

to a world of choppy water,

 

and stood  

tall on a scarp

 

watching the waves surge,

rain spray

 

until the sea dropped

back and away

 

and even though 

we were bereft, 

 

even though

we were washed out 

 

we became salt and air.
