RAINE REFLECTIONS

Waves

 

 

the
chatter rolls
in gentle waves
subliminal smatterings
against smooth rocks
receding toward
the wetness
of a supple
tongue
licking out
occasional syllables
only half heard and then
drowned in gurgling
mumbles
a once
submissive
voice rises to the tide
a crescendo of meaning
crashes against rough stone
before receding slowly
softly back into
the cold
calm
