brine and brimstone

2015-12-14 10.59.04

wing westward gregarious gull.
against wild gusts of wind
trace the strong scent of sea salt
to its ancient arcane source

 

fly far from home of field and fen
embrace the echo of the womb
find for me futures emerging
in depths of amniotic sea

 

bare breast to brine and brimstone
birth and the first bated breath
the tumult of our days
in untold yearning of the waves
