Growing Concern

author’s note:

Deep calleth unto deep.
              --  Psalms 42:7


Through work I did not know
I’d done, the wave has grown

nearly beyond
my puny abilities
to contain the wave.

Though I’m still holding
I feel that someday
I won’t--

and when the wave crests,

where will I be then?

Maybe swept away,
swept up, swept under.

I’m doing
deep knee bends
to prepare
for deep sea diving.
Even so...

I still worry.

Even so...

I’ve not yet lost my desire
for wonder.
I won’t.
