By the Sea

June, 2019

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.
