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.
