Point Beyond

Over and beyond
that stretch of rocks
my eye falls upon
the deep blue calm.
The same I looked
since I looked first
today, once more again,
and all of my tomorrows, I suspect.
Mark the change
of its blue-green shades,
or watch the white caps
fall to windless flats.

Never still, it still remains,
that urging, whispered question,
-Why not, boy?
-What next?
I, floating in my shivering flesh
a grain of sand, tucked well within
that same rock harbour
of my safe spent youth

Safe....for now
in safe surrounds
But....someday.
Soon, but not yet.
