By the Sea

Under windswept trees 

I close my eyes 

I am surrounded by the seas.
Oceanic,

Sweeping over

Through 

Beyond me.
Beeches,

No beaches

But the waves are the same.
White horses gallop

Through my tired mind.
I am surrounded by the seas.
Rushing towards

Blinkered eyes

Illusion of sound

All around me.
I am surrounded by the seas.
Green and lush

Ever moving

Never still

Nor calm

Nor gentle…
Leaves for seaweed;

Cones for shells;

Birds for flying fish

Humans for sharks:

Avoided.
Like a rock

I wash up beneath my tree

Surrounded by the sea,

The sighing, crying sea.
