this is mine

I’m making this my own
from gun-metal blue salt water
to orange fruiting of the sun

I am ankle deep in the sand of low tide
running out fast
in the chop of a wind
that has raised heads
white at the top of driving waves
full of fizz in the black
of a night that fades
behind the moon
shining a ripple-line that reaches out
to the last of daylight

this is all mine.
