Day 107 Isolation

the big splash


after the rain stopped

and water receded

Noah drove his big clunky handmade boat onto land

That was there all along. beneath the gathered waters


Again on land

on what God calls earth

I wonder,

did Noah miss the simplicity of the forever waters

did he miss the big splash?

the great rocking seas?


I wonder if he was not just a little disappointed

To get back to dry land life

back to earth

as God would say

Feeding the animals

House hunting

Moving rocks

Paying rent

Taxes

Shopping for kid's shoes


I wonder if he missed

His 40 days

riding the big splash

riding the big swells

waiting for the olive branch

waiting for the dove

His 40 nights

of endless stars

an ever changing moon

forever waves

rocking

rocking

rocking

rocking his children to sleep
