ODE TO THE SEA
You soothe me.
As if within a dream swaying on the edge of possibility…
Light pours inside you from a distant sun
The air is sharp...with flecks of salt beneath the veil of light .
I watch you.
I smell the cells of you upon my skin.
I hear the roar of your voice and your voice alone.
There is music here, between you & I.
And thirst swells in you and breaks your eyes open against jagged rocks.
And I walk, barefooted, your foam cascades off of the end of a wave and douses my feet in cooling kisses and I know then, I feel it then, you honour me as I honour you.
