Do you always trust your first initial feeling?
Special knowledge holds true, bears believing.
I turned around and the water was closing all around
Like a glove, like the love that had finally, finally found me.~Stevie Nicks
I want to school her in yes and
clinging to her ideals sunders
our agreement. I say, be cautious
of labels and she says it shouldn’t
matter, only right action does.
The judgment of what is right
so nebulous it creates a fissure
and our power diminishes. We wade
through tidal pools, chasing
the truth while ancient coral
cuts into our flesh as jagged
matter does. We reach the sea
at last, this pulsing vital force
like love, too endless to name
even though it’s often claimed
in the beginning was the word.
Inspired by: Love, Nebulous, Fissure, Sunder, an idealist who interacted with me on Twitter, my favorite place on Oahu and these lyrics from Crystal, “to the sea, to the sea, to the sea” that woke me this morning.
