eyes awaiting

amidst the clouds and lilies
stand eyes aimed across the line
awaiting any sign of swimming
on the other side of this edge
this boundary at which eyes stand
rooted in patience
upon the land
beneath the waters
eyes watch and wait
stilts suspend
the gravity of time
until they give way
to wings of flight
in the sea above the sea
above the still reflecting sky
graceful motion above echoing
the grace of action beneath
then diving down into
the netherworld
to join the eye with thee
