Ocean True

Strewn saffron strands paint the sky

as morning birds float gently by

The waves creep onto my shore

leeching a salted residue

like sweat evaporated on skin

low tide reveals my within

Shallow rock pools

brimming with shine

medusa sea grasses

suspended in brine

and starfish curl and sway

whisper good morning, good day

 

Ocean renew me in cyclic refrain

infuse me with currents

from warmed summer rain

as my heart
