John Grey


Moon slung overhead,

tide rolls in

on the back of writhing kelp,

uprooted pebble and shell.

Water lifts itself,

rolls forward,

collapses where it feels footprints.

From the boardwalk above,

I hear the sigh of wind and waves,

the fullness of the water

that gathers at the rocks,

is then released,

wends backs into itself.

With only breath to compare it to,

I’m charting the rise and fall.
