Night walk on the beach.

Command of the sea and the deep waters was given by lot not to you, but to me!
Virgil, Aeneid, Book I.

Hey, have you seen the moon
sailing
through all the tattered clouds
reaching a cold hand
brushing off cloud-shreds,
gathering up the sea.

Here, where the water
becomes salt.
Here, where the tide-line
is marked by the weed.
Here where footprints and paw-prints
dissolve...

Have you seen the moon
effortlessly
lighting the storm-night
raising the water,
catching the tides up
like the ragged hem of her dress.
