Urchin’s Valentine

Yearning for the ocean
Just to see it
Lifts me into another world
The way the sky finally
Answers us both as equals
Offering a whole new prospect
The promise of forgotten beaches
The cemetery and the birth places
We pick our way among
The rocks and human debris
Thrown up by the tide
Searching for the urchin’s pool
Like a little womb
The still unbroken spell
