The Sea

by Rona Fitzgerald

 

 

The sea
               

                        is a seeker
 

coves     crevices

                              fissures

familiar shores.

 

Moon glow

                   sun sparkle
                                   evening shimmer
sepulchre  grey.


 

Sucks you in
                       like depression
or love

              surrounds 

                                   entombs.

 

Casts you on the rocks
                                    bleeds you raw
keeps you

                                                 in depths.

Try to float
                    let it carry you.

 

Close your eyes

                           imagine

you’re                                   a pearl.
