The Waltz




soft caress,

a fizzing foam

tickles baby’s kicking feet.

Seaweed tufts comb the reefs

of coral, guesthouses for ocean’s stars.

Salt-crusted towers belay the rudder’s swipe

inland. Wind blows white sails into winged doves

flying over fish, rays, and whales. Poseidon fingers the

continents like pieces of a puzzle. Seas waltz around Earth.
