standing on this rocky outcropping,
overcast skies and overcast eyes send everywhere
steel grey oceans laid out for any to claim, to taint
hissing seaspray arching into the chill of winter
ocean-water throws itself against the blunt rocks,
the flavor embedding itself in my mind.
memorized to the tastebuds along my tongue, inhale.
the sea-scent never to be forgotten.
grey, grey ghosts
hidden in horse-hoof clatters of sea against stone,
hidden in swells rising and falling
rising

rising.

rising...
