sea change

sea change

sitting on land's edge
simply watching
some gulls are watching too
while others glide or flap
or call the names of friends
and ripples quickly lift and slip away

sailboats seem to hover in all of this
they have such hintful alluring names
Time Out
and
Solace
come to mind

the boats slowly join in a water dance
to the silent muse of shifting tides
each craft answering the moon
from flow to ebb
turning
in their own way and time
this morning to face the manifesting sun
