Images of a High Tide

harbour entrance swell

river bridge

above the beach

the scraping rattle

millions of stones

sucked off the beach

returning to the sea

 

beside the harbour wall

crossing waves

rearing waves

joining

breaking in foam

crashing

onto the shingle

the vast pull

of the receding sea

the undertow of sound

 

the bay

grey brown sea

under a blue sky

the shine of sea washed gravel-sand

a steady barrage of waves

from the horizon

 

the cliffs

distant

hazed by the sea smoke

rising in a salty sunlit glow

 

the beach

waves breaking

assaulting the beach

waves vanquished

back into the sea

only a white froth left

to vanish
