The Sea

This poem was written by me in spring 2008, inspired by a Sufi poet.

I anchored in the Ocean of Silence.
I saw the ships sinking and the planks drifting.
I saw the planks sinking.
Everything that once seemed to be nailed down
was devoured by hungry floods.
The storm whipped the waves
and made them sweep across the coast.
Coast? From the mainland every trace disappeared.
Now all is the Sea.
