Mutterings of a Mood

The Mood of the Sea

Beside you at the new day’s rising, I
see the hologram of your surface,
sometimes silver, sometimes grey.
I hear the craggy momentum of history upon glacial shore;
and the soft edges of a heron in morning contemplation;
The crumb of my biscuit is salted by your ranting;
my spirit is cleansed by your laughter’s salinity.

Your variegated allure is balm, is verse,
to those who sense metre and foot in
the mutterings of the mood of the sea.
