Folded beneath white caps

rosy crystals stack in layers,

letting go  their hold-fast

seashells loosen their grip.

Released from the rushing tide

tendrils of   slippery seaweed

catch among the sea oats,

prisoners of the dunes.

A shroud of melon sky climbs down

the sweeping vista.

Seafaring specters bob among the swells

drifting apparitions devoured by the horizon.

Gulls hover between sea and sky

wings plunge in and out of azure

their throaty caws console the lonely sea.
