not there before
foam at last
now just spray and mist

on the dream water’s breast
I read tomorrow’s wonder:
the secret of waking

the mirror swallowed
my footprints on the shore
I couldn’t blame the waves
the geese kept flying over the head
the shadows kept moving afar

Waves crash and roar
Against naked flesh
Upon rocky shore
Concealing fears
Consuming dreams
Revealing tears
Masking screams
