Title: ankle 3
Post by: Chris Dudley on April 12, 2018, 01:52:45 PM
Sunk to the ankle
In sliding surf
Sun in its sky on the ground
Rippled in sliding foam.

Rush of waves, the vertigo
Vertigo of changing ground
Deeper the feet plant in the sand
As the breakers continue to sound.

Sand between toes, pull of the wash
Thrown up then sheet down the beach
Sink as I stand into the sand
As the water erodes it again.

Each wash of a wave waves a cool breeze
To the knees, to the hips, to the chest
Carries the mist of the breaking
Then the Sun drives the heat back at it.
