Ocean in Motion

Ocean
in
Motion

The earth slipped, slid
water moved, climbed, broke
over the land
after buildings swayed, roads
cracked,
Earth shifted.

Spreading out, the waves
unseen, fast,
500 mph fast, moving across
horizon to horizon,
ten hours, five
thousand miles.

Building, crashing,
moving with the power of
Japanese mountains falling
against Oregon beaches.

1.6 nanoseconds faster
the Earth spins through space
all from cracks in the ocean
in motion
today.
