Missing Earth

Missing Earth

I love the ocean –
Not the ocean itself
But where it hits the land

Once, twice on a boat
I couldn’t see land
East, West,
North, South
No longer existed
Only up
And down
Sky and sea

Disoriented,
I scanned for the ribbon
That separates blue
From blue
Eager to return
To Earth.
