And The Ocean Would Stand Still

Some days I wish the

moon would disappear and night 

would bring a darkness 

unseen and the ocean would 

stand still as glass and the stars,

the whole universe 

would be right there floating on 

the water, so close 

that we’d recognize ourselves 

and remember where we’re from

About soitgoes1984

I was born and raised on land stolen from the Pocumtuc. I now live on a small island in the middle of the Pacific ocean, on land that was stolen more recently, from the Hawaiians. I am addict, struggling to kick the habit of fossil fuel. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.
