PORPOISE PURPOSE

Have you ever watched a porpoise

make its way

from point B to point A?

 

Her fin emerges and disappears

in a rhythmic display.

 

There is no hurry.

There is no stress.

There is only

purpose,

movement,

and progress.

 

Soon,

she is out of sight,

her porpoise purpose

pulling her onward.

 

And you are left wondering:

What if I were to live

with such rhythm and drive,

is that what it means to be alive?
