After Writing Too Many Poems

I think
I'm poemed out.
I need a break
from figurative

I need
an afternoon
of sitting on the beach
looking at the waves

and just thinking
about them
as waves
and nothing else,

just water
being pulled
by the moon
onto the shore.

That's it~
not waves of emotion
or waves of sorrow
or waves of troubles,

plain, simple waves
that do not beg
to be put into
a poem.

Everything beautiful begs to be put in a poem.
