a promise

a boy and the waves
chasing each other
the waves reach and recede as far as strength takes
he, as far as the ocean can hold him safely
they are laughing, promising
to see each other often
time and the ocean will offer him a crest
he and time will ride.

I, too, make a promise
with time to see them together
I, too, am laughing
my eyes, the loudest.
