Hold Steady, Love

what our love is known for comes in waves and gathers
at the shore front and laps at our feet making out patterns
with the shells and seaweed and driftwood aligning tracks

that sit in the sand a little while then away they wash back
and taken as a boat by the tide you and I seem drifting forever
upon an ocean with motion towards endless storms' tether

but not break or splinter will we for anchored strong and fast
to the sea's floor and gash with claws the wind will till then pass
leaving us weathered and seasick but on knees in thanks

hoisted sail to the gusts to carry us further on by our flanks
