Prodigal child





For a long time, I held to the knowledge
that I was a child of the earth, raised on rich soil
& air the flavor of dark bread
& though I heard about the sea, those stories
were whispered & strange & far from the ones
I knew.
Then, I met you, with eyes the color of storms,
or the emerald of deep waves when sunlight
moves across your face &
you are such a liquid invitation to the world
that I wonder now if the sea has called to me
my whole life & hearing nothing in return
sent you here to bring me home.
