from the sea

hac sa beach crags ©papa osmubal


from the sea

— iris fan

behind the door
hung a yellow coat
I used to wear to the beach

slipped my hand into
the pocket pulled out
two astonished crabs
a whiff of salty wind
brought near laughter
of little girls picking
trumpet shells

down there
touched with finger tips
a golden sandcastle
I dared not reach further
