tides

lazily the waves

lap the pebbles on the beach

a crab scurries by

to burrow beneath wet sand

a prisoner of the tides

Jaws in real life

Master of the sea
Smells blood from miles away
Swims with dominance
Sharp serrated teeth devours
Naive humans viciously

THERE IS A RIVER

THERE IS A RIVER

there is a river
that’s flowing down to the sea
and i would enter 
floating along    peacefully
down to that ocean of life

that eternal depth
depth knowing no measurement
that ocean of life
life beyond the physical
at peace    happily floating

gone the worldly cares
gone the wild will to survive
there is a river
that’s flowing down to the sea
oh yea    it has been promised

Beach Park Tanka


Blue ocean vistas
Rainforest encroaches down
Tree roots over stone
Vines reach, wind, twine and climb
Clutching trees that cradle them

Burleigh Heads beach path
Pandanus groves, mangroves
Strange variety
Spiky bushes, towering trees
Tiny flowers underfoot

Raggy  paperbarks,
Log bridge, white sand, shallow creek
Invisible birds give song
Each day travel the same path
Only to find it diff’rent.

Tanka:

Your face unwrinkles
You are imponderable
In your vast silence
In your deep, dark blue embrace
Who dares breach your salty keep?

Inhaling the Sea

The scent of freedom An epic journey begins The sea to my face My back to the blowing winds Uncertainty breeds new life

A Quickie

beneath ocean waves
dreams of those who dream - simmer
waiting for that spark
to lift them from their slumber
in vibrant purple bubbles
