Image for the poem ON THE GREAT WAVE

ON THE GREAT WAVE

I rode
The Great Wave
With its many grabbing hands
All the way into the ground
The other day

Pummeled into submission
By the goddess of sand
(who held me desperately for a time)
I was pulled back
Into the watery maw

Blind now I go
With the gathering currents
Joining fingers with the rest
Of her adherents
Ready to embrace again

The salt in my body
is the sea in me,
Eroding,
Receding,
Exploding and pleading

I've often wondered why I love Hokusai's image so much.
