The sea

"Welcoming Tide" by Sulyn Godsey



The Sea

by Rona Fitzgerald



The sea

                        is a seeker

coves     crevices


familiar shores.


Moon glow

                   sun sparkle
                                   evening shimmer
sepulchre  grey.


Sucks you in
                       like depression
or love




Casts you on the rocks
                                    bleeds you raw
keeps you

                                                 in depths.

Try to float
                    let it carry you.


Close your eyes


you’re                                   a pearl.
