Odyssey - Poem by Tim Johnson

If I stand on the beach
I can see everything

Looking down
Washed up at my feet
All that the world has broken
Small, fractured, lifeless

Further out
The rolling powerful vastness
That is the universe
On display, endless

Up above
Capricious fate
Wind, sun, clouds
Looming, faceless

Then I see the fragile boats and wonder
At the courage and hope of man
