Climbing into Blue

Climbing into Blue

Once, while sitting high among dunes

on a lonely stretch of unnamed sand,

she fell asleep despite relentless roar.

 

Atlantic winds pulled and twisted

long strands of hair, pummeled

her bones with metrical blows.

 

Soon, bellows of crashing waves

circled back to a small Iowa grove

bound by cordoned green fields.

 

Here, in this isolated belt of trees,

she climbed high into the blue,

shouted back at the roaring wind.

 

Later, she awoke, surprised to be

sitting at ease on the edge of a sea,

the scent of pine on her hands.
