Blue is the colour

This is a rallying cry:

A call to arms, for sufferers and seekers of salvation.

For those licked by the twin flames of sadness and sea-worship.

For pain and remedy.

Listen: and heal.




Come all ye wave-watchers, sunset-seekers,

Tide chasers,  yes you who even though it be a Monday

and after long meetings, yearn for the swell- and drive.

Come: all you blanket- wrapped, dune-swaddled poetry readers,

Gull-gazers and sprinters beneath a particularly blue sky.


Take heart, you soul-searching, lunar-listening

Pebble glistening devotees.

Yours is the high-tide,

The sunset.



Between toes, in your hair clinging.

A memento, of a trip taken.

With another adventurer

Who remembers
