The sea

Efrat Mishori

The sea hid itself in the water.
The sea turned away in its waves.
The sea disguised itself as a transparent color
And the waters over it gave.
The sea drowned in the sea.
The sea toppled over and stomped its waves.
The sea came from itself to itself
And the seafroth covered its face.

For years it has heaved its mass
Without future, without past
Presenting us with its changeable front
Whose depths have dried and become water.

Awash in the blue lull of its wakening smell
The sea cannot read itself
Only bring itself forth:
Breed waves
From more wavesAnd bring forth quiet
From disquiet.
