Your waves
crash
outside my window
and all I
can do
is stare in awe
at how vast
your expanse
can be.

And in the deepest
reaches of the sea,
I sit here,
staring out a window
and I ask myself:
"What if,
instead of running
along you
I’m running instead
toward you"?

I’d develop
a greater
appreciation
for the depths
you’d reach the shore
if only
I could run across
the vast e
xpanse
that is you.

A short poem I wrote while I was riding Amtrak's Pacific Surfliner to San Diego, which hugs the Southern California coastline, a couple of weeks ago.
