Emotions are the tide
Within
Niether good nor bad.
They are the lull
That pulls us
Retreat
Push forward
Slow
Rush

When the landscape
Changes
The waters part and recede.
The rift opens
And we run
Cavernous feelings
They can feel ominous
Lasting
But emotions as the tide
Swift and sway
Over and through
Just as the rivers
Form Canyons
Beauty within our landscape.

Breathe as the Earth pulls
The tide
In and out,
Up and down
and recede in the knowing
All will rise again.
