My Birthday Poem

July 4, 2016

Our view of reality is conditioned by our position in space and time — not by our personality as we like to think.  (Quoted from Balthazar by Lawrence Durrell)

I am not lonely
the beach is lonely
a place of loneliness
just the rock, others
who are here alone
what will remain
the surf pulsing
back & forth
each wave lonely
chasing another
then another
up the beach
they meet only when
they pull back to foam
each single pebble
rattling against this one
then that one, both wet
cold, smooth, alone.
