then sand then sea and horizon

by mistersoto

summers ago
then sand then sea and horizon
a memory of your fabric worn
it’s borderline crossing the skin
confessions unconfessed
laying there nearly motionless
in our eyes
save glints reflecting
we exchanged all we were given
for love
formed and unformed
across those dunes rewritten
on gull days
hand in hand
now landed
scavenging the shells
on tide’s return
we’d stay
reborn under
wave’s encroaching surface
