Sea Shadows

The sea is a shadow washing the shoreline,
filling in dents and scavenging sand,
drowning dunes in beach foam and brine.

The sea is a shadow chasing along the strand,
shattering shells and scattering stones,
casting its treasures on the bleak hinterland.

The sea is a shadow of clamours and moans,
a sobbing soliloquy borne on the wind,
stealing your breath and rattling your bones.

Kim M. Russell, 2017

    1. You take pictures in unusual places from unusual angles, Sue, and everyone has their own interpretation! I enjoy finding out where the location is and am often surprised 🙂


      1. We move back up to Suffolk soon, from Somerset, back home. We like to go Where the Norfolk coast bites and whips sand in your face and the wind blows more away than cobwebs. 😇
