POEM: Discovery

Updated: Dec 2, 2019

by RACHEL BEHRENS - October 10, 2019


Standing on an ocean

of frigid winter waters,

tantalized by the Shark

chilled in time beneath,

Its unusual calmness,

speckled by the last feeling

of a fin upon the water's blade,

is maintained within its Eyes.

A fabled relic

unbothered by the ice,

No driving force is

hot enough to soften

this delicate Predator

still waiting to be discovered.

For I have yet to get the strength

to melt the ocean waves.
