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.
