Swirling foam tickles my ankles
Toes wiggle in the archaic sands
Minnows dart, carving symbols in the tidal plane

Rising sun heats my bare back
Gulls sing anthems to the dawn
Waves rise in the distance, announcing the coming change

Rolling waves, closer, building
Fleeing tides ripping sand and shell away
Sand escapes beneath my feet


Salt burns membranes
Water cascades away from sprawled limbs
I have been caught unaware, startled by familiar currents

Laughter swells within the sea 
of me

NOTE: If this one seems familiar, it is one I've been working on for a while and have revised...
