salvage

once upon the water
you found yourself
at sea, caught up
in the eye of a storm
you clung for dear life
to the wreckage
of your history -
sink or swim
you cried,
your grip losing out
to the flood tide.

washed up, flotsam
on a foreign shore,
gathered up, taken in
by a singular stranger
offering new meanings
for old rope,
alms for a new life.

the scope
for misunderstanding
is wide,
purposes often cross,
but word
by whispered word,
a living universe
translates itself
in answer to your prayers.

sound again
in stucture
and skin,
you take back
to the waves,
this time ready
to make time
good.
