The Atlantic Ocean swells
Poised to rise and dip to slap the shore, drift Stepping back again and again to the mercy of the moon Ruffling, speeding, taking in sand, cracking shells Forever forming white
Sun stabbed ocean blindly shining bright

Wide, deep
Beauty to kill
Standing on a cliff ears echo

In the distance one lone sole lying on the beach Row on row of puckered rims lapping the shore Blazing sun, glistening burning on water Ocean, a fire gushing
Seagulls sing far from daffodils
And I linger on the beach as the sun sets
