she came from the sea

she came from the sea a determined wanderer he stood on shore rooted to earth she washed over him filled with highs and lows his legs were thick trees unmoving, solid his chest withstood all remaining staunch and firm his immobility angered this female she attacked him with fury the depths of his understanding held him emotionally sound as her torrent broke over him scattering in fragments at his feet covered in her muck he stooped down lifting the woman safely above all turbulence he cleansed them both in ocean waves carrying her the whole way when clean he righted her stood back asking if he could do anything else she asked for forgiveness turning for home he caught an arm gently inviting her to stay so began the story of two opposites cleaving one to the other night and day, moon and sun for the rest of their lives
