Starfish doesn’t care
to hear about your day
or learn about your dreams.
He doesn’t want to visit
or hang out with the anemones.
Doesn’t care to be part of the story.
But in those moments when the world is fast
and it feels like seaweed is wrapping your ankles to pull you to the depths of sister ocean,
Starfish is there, a beacon.
A rock that moves in his own time,
knows where he is needed
and goes when it suits him.
The quiet confidence of a balanced friend; a sanctuary amongst the chaos.
