Sweeping out the dust

Once again it's that time to take
or fake
an inventory of myself
So here it is
All that has grown and re grown
from some residual timeless part of
living
This garden of such an
abysmal yearning

I know truly but one thing
it will always be
and it will always be
tied to some ocean of
a creator
For me at least wherein the
connections to
invisible tides
ebbing pushing yet
never still
never

The great explorers of long ago
far and away
know this one thing
at least by now
In all their searching
Perhaps some of us never
reach the all important
destination
Yet
we still keep sweeping
for answers
or is it
the question itself

Wonderful poetry. Like the lapping of ocean waves we never know what time and tide may bring. I'm a Pisces guess that's why I have a love of the ocean and sea. Enjoyed this and passing it on.
