and white rock-strewn, weed-flecked turbulence,
and backwash stillness,
Sometimes, speed and splash are needed
(not contrived, nor driven),
followed by places of essential pausing,
gently and softly lit.
Not much is known
except the process
and the Companioning.
Thankfully, what awaits
allowing delightful gifts,
tender things unthought,
visitations beyond dreaming,
to be cherished
tears of passion,
savoured, still silence,
and moments of flaming, dancing light.
