Sea foam sparkles on the waves. Sea lions
roar. Foam shivers, flies
into the wind. The tide holds its breath.
Hisssssssssssss

**********

Ganesh’s belly rests in his lap. His trunk
caresses tree, root, sky. His feet can’t be so
small, can they? To hold up such a big heart?

**********

Black grapes in a white bowl. Thick skin, sweet
wetness on the tongue.

**********

Giraffes nibble lilac clouds.
One gulp. All gone.

**********

Follow this dimpled eddy down down down. Blue-green
sea green, azure, mink. Murky mists. Sun
shines up from its sea bed. Stars shatter across the sky.

**********

From the beach below, a springy rainbow path
sends a formal invitation. Walk on water. Walk on air. Walk
through the stars. Walk…walk…walk…out
to the edge…in
to home.

**********

Yesterday, you were a tired old man. Today, you’re
three-and-a-half. Today, you rule the world.
One flick of your pigtails and…off with their heads!

**********

Roses. Spicy-musk. Hidden under the floor-boards. Exuding
rose-ness, a tang of cloves.

**********

Tomorrow, a whisper curls around every ear.
Have you heard? The tide is here!
