Posts Tagged ‘Marina Beach in Edmonds Washington’

.

It rolls in to me

one fresh churned wave

of salt-laden soup

in mussel shell blue

.

with armor of chiton

in sea-weed sway

and twists of driftwood

on layers of foam

.

bringing crab legs and agates

in dustings of gold

that buckle and rattle

kaleidoscope stones

.

and as barnacles yawn

to taste the high tide

it rolls in the next one

for you.
