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.

And it rolls out another for you –

one slow buckling wave

serves up cold soupy sea

bearing armor of chiton

and mussel shell blue,

with twists of driftwood

and layers of foam,

crab legs and agates

in dustings of gold.

Now toppling, it rattles

kaleidoscope rocks,

then undulates kelp

in sea-weeding sway

and as barnacles open

to taste the high tide

it rolls out another for you.

Paean on Puget Sound

Snow-edged mountains

surround the high tide

in the eye of the Sound

Puget Sound - Washington

as gulls pound the wind

higher and higher

with sun filled wings.

But nothing’s more aglow

than these waves of delight

as they ferry my heart

to the sea.
