For the Survivors

Immovable vs Unstoppable, Ucluelet Storm Season, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada

As sea falls back into sea
Prepares for a new assault on the shore
Its hardened rock
Broken but not brittle
Beneath the bruised sky
Of abuses relentless

I am reminded
Of the survivors

I came for the storms
For the thrash and hiss
Of the sea upon the rock
The immovable
Resisting the unstoppable

And it is
In a manner
Difficult to describe
So utterly beautiful
And moving

But I wish
In this moment
Only for the peace
Of a clear sky
And an ocean

The Immovable and the Unstoppable
Vancouver Island
British Columbia, Canada
