The Stranger


Leaning back, floating in the waves
        off Tybee Island, a stranger amid

the jellyfish, rays, mullet
        that skitter on the surface

making me wonder what bigger fish
        are chasing them, and other creatures

unseen. Here, in their world but not of it,
        immersed yet separate,

        even to myself.

  1. “and other creatures” there is something in this little note that has me pondering…are they creatures unknown or non-fish entitities that live within the waves or outside of the waves…are they unknown to those that “skitter to the surface” or simply unknown to you…I think I ponder too much…an enjoyable read.
