Like a Breeze Recalls

Like a breeze, recalls…

Taught ropes moan as the lapping swell
coats their fibrous knotted ache
with salty wet age, stretched and then released
like a torturous pain as the dinghies clatter
in echoed wake of an incoming tide.

The water in magnified clarity,
reveals the rippled sandy shoal beneath,
darting shadows and seaweed dances
sway in the relief of distinct ribbon shards,
spotlight sand with shell appendages.

The grey wood pontoon bobs in syncopation,
the sibilant swoosh of lapping like hands
slapping the gnarled planks,
and rhythmic those dinghies become,
a symphony of intricate knocks and splashes.

Mesmerising the shallows, its aqua glass
a rolling-self-perpetuating glimmer of light,
sparkling as the new dawn invites incumbency,
dancing glitter across the crests of rising
and shadows of fall, like a breeze, recalls.
