Wind’s rush and sea’s roar

Are broken by the skitter

Of a kicked pebble.

A still sea –
But beyond the reef
Light dances.

I walk on ripples –

The sea’s great footprint shifting

Under my small step.

Chalk headland,

A block breaks away –

France-bound ferry.

The sea’s eddies

Carved in periwinkle shells

All along the shore.

cormorant again

My black coat flaps.

A cormorant at rest

Stretching its wings.

A ribbon of foam

Swirls a moment at sea’s edge,

Then sinks in the sand.

sea foam

Clouds swirl in sea foam,

Drops of sunshine ride the waves,

Heaven visits earth.

The lagoon gathers

Day’s dying light, reluctant

To let it go.

Retreating tide –

Ebb and flow of my thoughts stills

Under a clear sky.
