Righting oneself
In stormy oceans
Moving to and fro
Please, pardon me

Constant motion
Swirling eddies
Roaring thunder
Heaving water

Storms calm
Suns rise
Clouds break
Peace at last

When writing List, my wife and I were finally exiting a dark period in our lives and things were starting to return to normal. After being knocked about in storms of emotions and feelings of physical distress, we were finally able to breathe a little easier. List speaks to moving forward no matter what waves come at you. If a ship’s engines stall during the storm, the ship is surely lost. I think the same is true with people. If we get caught up in the storm and stop moving forward, we are lost as well. Keep. Moving. Forward.
