A seahorse thought,
A very small wave

Followed by another.
And way down below,

Its counterpart,
The seahorse . . .

And maybe deeper,
Some quiet resolve

To explore vast spaces
Of eternal quietude beneath oceans

That seem to never end. And yet,
Someday we wind up in the sunlight on a shore

As beautiful as any place imaginable
With no plastic

Nor any trace of war,
And there, to make peace with the memory

That we made it through
By simply being kind.
