Tonight there are waves in the wind

Tonight there are waves in the wind,

An ocean of salt-feathered wings,

As graceful as fish, silver-finned.

Tonight there are waves in the wind,

Grey gulls to the wild clouds are pinned,

While the tide as it flows inland sings—

Tonight there are waves in the wind,

As graceful as fish, silver-finned.

A thought for the last day of NaMoWriMo

The end of a chapter not the story.
The source will never run dry
As long as the words that flow from the heart’s depths
Sinuous and supple as silvery fish
Leap vibrant and vital onto a page
And colour the bland whiteness
With rainbow hues.
