Sea Rockets ©

After hearing Kathleen Jamie tonight at the Shetland Library.
Thank you for your inspiration.

Nat Hall
Sandwick, Shetland
2005

There we walk,
barefooted, deep in sand -
crystallised souls
before each tide,
emerald-green,
adrift in
spray,
afraid to
fray...

Mystical scent
awakes our dream,
invisible,
pinkish-lilac,
fresh,
succulent.

Wave after wave,
sea rockets
heave
womanly charms
so innocent.
They dance alone,
reel in light
breeze;
firmly rooted,
like us in sand.
