One Heart Beats

by Alan Gale, UK

We are adrift
on a vast ocean

Like fish we dance
in clouds of colour

amidst the coral
transfixed by the beauty.

Yet, watchful, tentative
unsure and fragile.

Bursting with life
we pulse and vibrate

Shockingly close
but yet apart

Different but the same.
In Life –
we mirror this dance.

Pursuing our separate visions
yet empty and wanting

Needful of the Ocean’s
Comforting swell

and our links with
the rest of Humanity.

One Universe
One Earth
One Nation.

All under one Skin.
