Tracey Riehl
Inspiration piece

By KJ Hannah Greenberg

Sometimes, a sea is just a sea, water caged by intertidal shores,

Is nothing more than pools and waves, perhaps estuaries for more


Sometimes, a sky is just a sky, outer space’s shy, intimate view,

Is nothing more than celestial spheres limned with tints of blue


Sometimes, sand is just plain sand, a barren terrain starved of rain,

Is nothing more than lowlands spread with small, coarse grains


Sometimes, a word is just a word, mere sound carried on the wind,

Is nothing more, no fancy thing or souls clasped, no hearts twinned

In perpetuity.
