The Cormorant

There you are

on your piling in the sea

reminding me

with your wings stretched out

drying in the sun

that I am not “water proof” either.

Sorrow and sadness

weariness and frustration

cling to me

like water to your wings.

I need to find that place

in the sun

where that wind is blowing

that holy wind

to clear my head and my heart

so I can fly again.
