The Wave

I walked around the rooftop garden
In my glass and ivory tower
Praying for rain to nourish
My well-manicured pot plants

The rain came along with a
Tsunami wave
That dragged us all screaming
Into the heart of the ocean

I panicked sliding through surface
Tortured by thunderstorms
But the wave pushed me further

Down below
There’s a whole new unexpected
Peaceful universe

Think I’ll settle down here
Right on the coral reef
With crabs eels turtles and
Even the great white shark

Why beg for a drop of water
When I can marry the Ocean

And never be thirsty again

Shards of glass split a sunbeam
Into a million rainbows

This is so
Much more
Than I had ever asked for
