Beauty Sits


is the tone of this love


ocean deep and eternal

that place where darkness will not go away

sits teaching, not taunting

sometimes we just have to wait

and look to find a way when the light climbs in

the path of holding on and letting go

littered with emotion

flowing with natural force

pace undetermined

another chapter closes

before the page turns left

tomorrow may be unwritten

but it awaits
