Longing Or Not

Standing on a jetty, tide is beginning to kick up
And just when a ray, a sliver of light begins to seep
Between night fall and and the sun rising
Dark clouds begin to part…hope does float
I’m engulfed in what could be…love
What I dream about; conjured memory recall
But yet here I stand not truly knowing
Off in the distance a pod of dolphins swim by
Seagulls swoop down grabbing oysters, clams
Dropping them onto the beach
Cracking the safe haven of their shell
A different world; survival of the fittest
I mull over what my heart truly longs for…or not
