Foundations

We thought that the coming wave
would take us under completely
when we closed our eyes
braced for the impact
that would shake us
tear us down
force us reevaluate
foundations that we once felt unshakable.

The only thing that arrived
was the sound of surf
and softly lapping waves
The water rose barely above our knees
allowing us a moment
to sigh
and enjoy our relief.
