We've been given the antennae,
to alert the nearest node in the wave,
with just a calorie of effort.
That's the gift that gives us leverage.

Lifting up to surf the edge,
the valleys fold into the blaze,
a simple word can push the sled,
as time eclipses our transgression

We could travel peaks and valleys
to conclusion for forever,
never once aligning neatly
(*** - for - tat)
with our impressions,

but...

We'd soon subside to find
a signal blinking in the night,
to heave it's burden on our tides,
and help us push it through the next one.

Remember that the signals always there.
It's always pulsing in the echoes.
Surfing waves beneath our vision.
Just remember we can lift it.

When you need it sound a siren.
Float the message to the surface.
All the lessons that have served us
see the gift in every second.

More Lives AGAIN... !!! “
  
Because of SECOND Waves...
Across... VARIOUS States...
In The USA And Farther Away... !!!
  
But Since When...  
Did The... FIRST One...
Reach It’s... END... ?!?
  
Was There A CURE...
Locked Down Indoors... ?!?
  
That These Government Heads...
Procured In... “Secret”... ?!?
In... CERTAIN CLOSETS... !?!
  
I Wouldn’t Be Surprised...
Because They Seem To Have LIED... ?!?
About These Waves Time And AGAIN... !!!!!
  
One Minute It’s Cool...  
To Re-Open Schools...
  
But Now They Say...  
That This Second Wave...

But Corona Now Claims...
The Number ONE Spot... !!!
  
For Waves That May SHOCK...

The jeans seem to be clean
The tone I bring is dark washed
My shyness is bleached
I keep thinking of spin cycles
Acid wash anything I can dream
Just a tab to expand what is loaded
Psychedelic and kaleidoscopic hues
Painting with a vivid open minded view
Let the universe hypnotize me
The spin cycle I keep thinking about
My decision to surf on a wave
Will it bring me tripped out pain
Stuck in the intertwining of space
Stuck between experience and entrapment
Acid wash me into a different color
Or drown me into a world I’m not ready for
Acid wash color me away

it's broad daylight,
everyone from a far waves at me
how crude it is to be seen—
as someone calm
and steady and naïve
but i hope they don't go near,
it's enough to let them see
once, not twice
i hope they don't go near,
the sun is just above me
and my shadow is smaller
but darker
in broad daylight
Back and forth.
A tug of war with my thoughts and feelings.
Fighting between two different entities;
The “Yes” and the “No”.

The “Yes” pummels my equilibrium.
Forcefully overwhelming me.
Almost drowning me.
But carries me closer to safety.

The “No” brings me back to equilibrium.
Welcoming my recovery.
Allowing me to stand to my feet.
But tries to drag me closer to my death.

As the ocean leaves my sight, I realise that the “Yes” is the incoming wave and the “No” is the outgoing wave.

I'm left with deciding which wave I'd rather ride.
Transcribe my sine wave,
     Rays like the sun.

Describe the unending normalcy.
   waves crashing: one too many.

Laser-focused against the (g)rain.
        Tsunami enraged.


Defiance is my resonant frequency,
      sorry to disappoint.

I am the way.

My same sound sits on silky sheets
On silky, silky, silky sheets
Reused first loyal letters meet
Reused first consonants.

My purpose put in perfect place
In perfect, perfect, perfect place
Planted within a pretty phrase
Planted within a word.

My words cement and connect close
And connect, connect, connect close,
Using my fun first feature most
Using my Alphabet.

My fun detail does deserve praise
Does deserve, deserve, deserve praise
Repeated in wonderful ways
Repeated in all that is me.

My same sound sits on silky sheets
Repeated in all that is me.
Rhyming Wave is a relatively new form of poem invented by Katharine L. Sparrow
