when the sky is slowly turning,
I can hear the foam love.
the ocean is ever awake
the surges of devotion
that cannot be suppressed.
the sand bubbles,
holding in the tenderness
for the so(u)l(e)s
that will step in the morning.
there are always streaks.
lines where sentiment
has stained the coast.
I was raised on the sand.
sea air slaked my newborn lungs.
The waves learned my name before I did.
a headline was printed in 1993.
“Dad’s shoreline strolls instill sea love in daughter.”
I was a beach blanket baby.
I am a quenched on briny sun woman.
The seashore resides under my feet,
even when I am not near it.
swirling, crashing, soothing,
The Sea waits for me.
