Sea Face - Poem by Jerry Pike

You starin’ at me, sea face?
You green eyed mystery
Drag my thoughts upon your rocks
And douse them wilfully.
Carve my mind with shingle
Crunch to crunch each blink
Calm your surface wonder
On everything I think.
Starving to infinity
Just a lark-less lake
Full of loafing fishes
For the big moons sake.
Bulging bright for nothing
Emerald opaque
Stamping flat the tides wash
Where the breakers break.
Still to almost move-less
Checkmate of the Earth
Coil inside me ruthless
Start again from birth.
