The Pacific

Starring out at the Pacific,
The seagulls, hundreds of them,
Floating in the water like a broken string of popcorn
From a Christmas tree.

The sea lion popping up to say Hello,
Then Goodbye,
Then Hello.

I suddenly remember that I am a writer,
A dancer, a dreamer.
Every day I work.
I work and I feel stupider.

How could I have forgotten about the ocean?
It’s waves crashing in,
Saying Hello,
And Yes, things change.
