Meditation on Distance

dedicated to my dearest friend, Ganga, who now lives thousands of miles away
The waves of this world
cover me
wash over me
bathe me, drown me

and you and me

we’re just like driftwood

riding and drowning
amidst the waves of this ocean
crying and shouting
to hear one another
vying and grasping
to catch a glimpse
of one another
and when at last
we touch
but for one breath
one caress
we let go
of one another
amidst these waves
that cover us
wash over us
bathe us, drown us
and I continue to yearn
for that moment
when I breathe
and you’re here.
