The Beach at the Back of the Ocean ~ A poem by Rachael Clyne

The Beach at the Back of the Ocean

beach folds me into rock
breathes me into tideline
air sails me on wingbeat
grounds me into shell-sand

I am a flurry, a twist
a tumble of hither-thither
Iona caught me in her net
tossed me in her flow
