The sea erupts into the darkness
Pulses of eternal foam and form
Slither off coral encrusted rocks,
Embedded deep in a dwarfish cave.
The sea snakes around the cave
Filling up cracks and sand holes
Tiny skeletal creatures up
In the heated waters;
The swirling sands.
The cave spills out onto the sea
Tripping a bell on a distant buoy,
Tied to a tidal path forever.
Rhythm on an invisible thread,
Anchored to the mystic moon.
