Charles J. Ingerson


Carefully measured rolls
almost the dance learned
where the seas oft pulls
the winds awful churned.

Dipping in the waves slow
raising in time of forever
a life within where I grow
completely safe never.

The ocean reeling motions
weaving a spell enchanted
emptiness filling emotions
where no wishes granted.

Only the swaying of waves
rushing fore or aft eternally
over histories many graves
pushing and pulling restlessly
