John Grey

John Grey
Amid shops and people,
trees and houses,
it’s the first step,
a tiny curl down glass
that’s really a symposium
on broad sea,
infusing wave after wave,
a cluster of foam and cloud
and river and puddle and pool,
the indestructible effusion
of an unimagined beginning,
gurgling in the sand
or waking up the sea grass,
or careering over a wall of rock,
to tremble earth
and the drops of water
already gathered.

John Grey is an Australian born poet. Recently published in International Poetry Review, Sanskrit and the science fiction anthology, Futuredaze, with work upcoming in Clackamas Literary Review, New Orphic Review and Nerve Cowboy.
