    4 SEA POEMS

    FELLOW LOVERS

    *

    We are
    fellow lovers
    of the sea.
    Because of
    her
    infinity
    to all she gives
    fidelity.

    *

    ANCHORS AWEIGH

    *

    The breaking of the day
    Light oer the sea
    makes its way.
    Wind counterpoints
    the 'anchors aweigh!'
    as it fills our sails
    and
    from across the bay
    takes us blissfully away.

    SANDSTITCHING

    *

    The sea sandsifting
    Birds sandshifting
    The wind sanddrifting

    but the grass....
    sandstitching

    SAILSTARRED SANDSIFTING SEAWEED-SCRIPTED SEA

    *

    Sail-starred, shell-shored, stream-swelled
    sand-sifting, seaweed-scripted sibilant Sea
    secedes silently, softly

    Shadowed shallows sheathing scallops,
    sheltering seals, shielding scuttling snails,
    shrouding sharks. Sands shifting secrete starfish,
    scampering shrimp.

    Serene Sea supports Spanish scows, Sicilian
    skiffs, Senegalese schooners, Seychelles ships,
    Sardinian sculls.

    Saltsmelling sailors see soaring shrieking
    seagulls, striped sunrise, shining sunset,
    shshshing surf.

    Sudden surprising storm's symphonic sounds
    slap shore shacks. Snows slip seaward, spring-subdued.
    Soon sloop slides spiral sleep stairway.
