The Wave

Paul-Jacques-Aimé Baudry (November 7, 1828, La Roche-sur-Yon (Vendée) – January 17, 1886, Paris) was a French painter. Throughout his early period Baudry commonly selected mythological or fanciful subjects, one of the most noteworthy being The Pearl and the Wave (1862).

The Wave

I watched from the edge
as the sea took you from me
as if I had known
this would happen on this day,
this coiled day ready
to strike me, taking
me by striking you with ways
I don't understand,
and now I'll return
as if you had never been
mine no matter what
I might have thought while
loving you, while you touched me
and sent me flying.

The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
