An Alien Wave

What was once
the ocean’s blue-green soul
appears in a whirl
while monster waves
heave and growl
and the dark of night
hides galactic light.

I feel a curdling
in my veins tonight,
an eyelid fluttering
from the heart.

Sometimes the flesh
has a foreign tongue
and the heart must withdraw
relying on faith alone,
like an alien wave
in the abysmal seas,
its crest torn amidst
wayfaring cries.

As a new week approaches,
the next adventure sighs,
and I long for the magic
of an unbridled ride.
