Poetic ponderings


Some of us are waves,

salt water caressing sea stacks

in our sweet tides
or on those full moon nights
we reflect your boldness
lift our skirts
let our lacy silk slips
drape along the shore line

we stir up the sand
pulling under your toes
until you are
caught up in our salty
dance, almost a waltz
gliding over sea urchin spikes,
we never pause,
or stop in,

yet for a quick landing
before we are pulled
back again,
leaving treasures,
pebbles of jade and chert,
at your toes.
