A Sea Poem - Poem by Frederick Kesner

Deep within me 
lay a sea poem 
of long ago;  

where air is fresh 
but blusters wildly 
when southerlies blow,  

slick and slimy 
mud between the toes- 
mangrove's brackish home. 

Whitecaps dance 
in the open channel 
close to where corals grow. 

But further than the distance 
of childhood recollection,  
where starfish-lined parades 
demanded retrospection:  

Gone are those carefree days 
along with sands, white as snow;  
somewhere deep within me 
lay a coastal tale of long ago.
