At the ocean

Wading in the ocean I am in four worlds:
the land, the sea, what is within,
and another.
         
                        •

Floating in the ocean,
my body hears
what I do not.
         
                        •

Watching the ocean,
the waves repeat themselves
until I stop understanding.
         
                        •

Sitting by the ocean,
the wind, not my knowledge of the wind,
washes me clean.
