Tide Pool

(I'm going to still try for those 30 poem starts I wanted in April, even if it takes me until the end of May, or June...)

They said you would be there

(And you were)

Whale eye clocking

The coastal demise

Where your saltwater
Mouth will be buried

Next to no one

The coral waving

Ashes to acid

The seagulls craning
Their necks side to side

"Ashes to acid' - I love it.

Thanks, Clayton :-)

"Where your saltwater
Mouth will be buried" is my favorite part. Seagulls and their necks side to side may be a funny image for this beautiful small poem...

I agree with both of 'em.

Thanks, ladies. I think you're right about the ending. I'll work on it.
