June 7, 2016 - Ocean Fog

OCEAN FOG

Bells chiming
chains clanking
wood groaning
the tide lapping in and out
rushing and receding
swish swish!
Bringing ocean gifts
stealing land creatures
like a thief in the night
a watery hand grabbing
pulling under and out to sea.
Voices carrying
loud, soft, then gone completely
only to return with strange laughter
just for a moment
or desperate calls, ahoy!
Or the eerie song of a loon
no one around for miles
I was mistaken
only me
and the ocean
just a trick of sound and sight
of bells and chains and wood
of thick grey mist
and water pulling
stealing again.
