Bay of Bengal

Occasionally you come across a place you’re happy just to know exists

Like this place, far out at sea where in deep, deep green water
Dolphins hunt and play and leap through waves where fish flicker

Knowing this quiet glassy tranquility is here some days
Some days are storms
Knowing that in gigantic calm
Whales expel moist breath into the still afternoon

These choppy waters
These rocking waves
This playful breeze

Where no light disturbs the stars and moon reflecting in the water of the bay
Where nothing interrupts light from the rising sun scattering across waves

I sleep more deeply at night
Breathe more peacefully
Love life more achingly

Knowing this place exists
