Sleek, below indigo
A mastery of dancing light,
She swims among waves.
Floating nothingness surrounds
Time stopped on beauty
As her deep eyes look up.
And ivory hands
Reach toward sunlight.
Treasured, rare wanderer,
Gyspy of the sea,
Song of timelessness,
and enduring breathlessness,
She swims eternal;
A captor of her s...

Tides surge pristine and blue
Waves topple free of plastic
Fishing nets lack dolphins
Isobars miles from drastic
Global warming a bad dream
The atmosphere crystal clear
Mass extinctions a fairy story
Kids' horizons free from fear
Clear skies without toxins
Greenhouse gas banished
All molecules of fossil fuel
Gone, coal just vanished

soft rolling waves
brushing the shoreline
come hurling. warmth
that used to make
your blood boil makes you
from all that you
have felt and long to
feel. digging deep
into the sand
to push it away,
this was not part of
the plan; moving
to the city
to be part of the
scene, only to
find you’re constantly

It presents gravels before my feet,
When it meets the sand,
Holding my longing gaze as I stand
Atop coffined treasures
And pebbles filled with flints made from memories,
That weigh my slippers
Down to this deserted beach.
Myriad secrets encaged in their bottle shaped ampoules
Float aimlessly like vagabonds do.
Imprisoned in cells of reminiscence,
They await their acquittal somet...

He witnessed the rise and fall of the tides
Of the sea that seemed so milky in the moonlight.
Gloating over its graceful strides,
The rumble of the colossal sea was all he could hear that silent night.
The stars twinkled in the darkness,
And the moon in the blackness
Gazed dotingly at him and his boat,
As the decrepit carrier carted its master swiftly afloat.
How long had he been at the ...

I’ll walk down to the beach,
see you standing there,
and tug on that beard.
I’ll knock you down,
roll around with you through the waves
and land on top.
You’ll have the sand between your hairs,
our bodies wet,
while watching the sand melt away beneath us.
It’ll melt the distance between us,
it’ll melt away the silence held within,
while we watch the...

Here we are, alone by the sea,
bursting with joy at finding each other.
There’s a wonderful, giddy feeling,
as if all nature were smiling.
The diamond on your finger gleams
like the shining path
of the sunrise on the water.
Our wedding bands were forged
from family rings and new gold.
They join us and our families
in the ancient, unbroken circle of life.
We are like the pla...

I was living certain and sure
of the future I desired
A house by the water
sea air kissing my eyes
before I brave the morning paper
A figure framed in a gaping doorway
watching freighters skim the horizon
Rest my coffee cup on the fence
slide a nail down this foriegn envelope
draw the perfumed letter from within
The paper see-through
like her summer dresses
My fingers beneath it

Old broken Southerly
It all started at the beginning
As most things do and did all time ever
Starting as they ever will and doing long never day
Doing long never day before the big night
Before the big sea shimmered green
walls of water, roaring, dancing
Long blow ripping the jagged edges of the shore
Old broken Southerly kissing fish tails a plenty
Rolling white h...

An Arctic air
pushes past the cracking door
as we step out
into the newly forming night
with many friendly cheers
chasing us from the hall
The searing wind
grabs you by the ears
and your bones will know the chill
in the chalk-white light
of this moon
Snow falls slowly
first on the cliffs above the lane
then these cobbles are scribbled out
under a virgin whiteness

in and out
up and down
pushing and pulling
A knock on the door
beating louder and louder
waking my fibers
restless and unrelenting
Louder it knocks
anxiety levels rising
these fears in me won't subside
Breathing in and out
imagining the waves
the calming waters
I am one with them
and how they rise aga...

A lonely boy in a sea of lonely nights
in that last hour of the day
capturing words he wishes he had said
writing them down
so they’re out of his head
Music fills the air
soothing the tension
lessening the cares
Take a trip to the other side:
what makes the other person tick,
what makes them come alive,
what’s in their head they’re trying to hide
