Low Tide

Low Tide
Act 1: Sand
I remember
The hushed curve of a wave
Spooling around my heart
Unfurled strength
Melting to the rhythm of a calming storm
Passing across the damp reflection of evening sand
Act 2: Moon
I remember
The fickle breath of foam
Whispering against my back
Honey-stained Paspalum
Basking in slivers of bleached sun
Leaping across the sails of a thousand ships
Act 3: Stars
I remember
The depth of an ocean’s sigh
Reaching refuge along the shoreline
A chandelier of stars
Paying homage to the distant pull of a planet
Soaked in swirls of methylene blue

Wonderful imagery, Edmund. I felt a little "lost" by the Acts because I wondered where the Water Act was. Perhaps you could put one in, as you begin Act 3 with it, and then just start an Act 4 with the Stars. Different perspective, but I like your take on keeping the words concise. Keep it up.
