SALT SPRAY



In a time of political chaos that is causing continual worry as we face losing our European citizenship and rights of freedom of movement to live in peace in Spain, I felt the need to escape the endless news. I am so fortunate to live between mountains and sea and today I let the waves wash away the stress. 





SALT SPRAY

Take me to the shore where rocks
cleft from marble veined cliffs,
spilling into foaming sea like
lumps of sugar in steaming tea.

Take me to the light where
star flare whites celestial sky,
sea shimmering like liquid gold,
flowing molten from the flames.

Take me to the waves where the
endless rise and crashing break
of wind whipped surf mists
upturned face with salt spray.

Take me to the sea where ozone
air clears a troubled mind, worries
cleansed as surge smoothed
pebbles trickle in the backwash.
