Poetry Spotlight – The Sound

The Sound 

you are the sound of a wave
echoing off of the boards
of a damp dock,
a forgotten noise
and a soothing one,
sought after by lonely

and when the wave chooses
to speak to the top of the
dock, that bathes in the
heavy sun, it eases
through the wooden planks
and settles down
with a delicate hum
then slips away:
that sound is me.
