Renhai Reflections 35: Sounding


A Renhai by Trish Shields (ts)* & Vaughn Seward (vs)
Written October 22 to 29, 2008

A small crab / races across mudflats — autumn squall.
Honeymoon cruise ship stroll —
/vs a kiss on his red cheek. /ts
Its barnacled snout / breaks the calm surface — gushing blowhole.

*Trish lives on Vancouver Island, in British Colombia, Canada.

Lovely seabased writing here.

I love the link between the kiss and the blowhole - or at least thats a link I draw. And that little crab, I want to follow him.
