The Beach

Footprints traced the hours before
journeys riddled on the shore
there among them moved a sparrow
feet so swift and prints so shallow

If not seen with searching eyes
it’s presence here could be denied
it’s gentle elegance and grace
erased by giants in it’s place

For every story sacrifices
to favour narrative devices
while tide will wash those prints away
my sparrow penned is here to stay.


The Air and the Water.

I dreamed of the Sea and the Sea dreamed of me.
We dreamed of the wash and the roll and the swell.
We slept in our beds while the off shore breeze,
Stirred air in our chest as it rose and fell;
Stirred ships in the harbour, the buoy and bell.

We were the marshland, with Samphir and creeks,
The point and the headland, the bank and the round,
We were the cockle beds rippled with pleats,
The coves and the gullies, the whistling sound,
The sea water silver and darkness the ground.

I wriggled my toes in the dry of sand
away from the groynes and their barnacle knots.
We bunched up the tide; gripped it tight in our hands,
Waves were our blankets, the beaches our cots.
On the pebbles where the foam and the motion stops.

I dreamed of the Sea and the Sea dreamed of me.
Over the dunes in my head I ran but could not make it…

…please let me reach; please let me see.
