Darkness on the shore

The person on the shore – stands motionless.
Turned away from the seas action
As the viewer still blind to seeing
The wave overwhelming…
Then drawn; – viewing the rear of the beach.

Slowness of the animation: The creeping the crawling
there is disaster about, lurking…The clear
black and white, dissolving the coloured world.
The unquestioning, of being there at that time
And time. What is it that is here? This black against white.

Even the white fades in to a clear eternity as magic glass.
Revealing those whose eyes who see in…
And your all unknowing eye that must see out
That ocean all able to take the essence and leave.
The dregs swill around the seas bed and wash up – along, tomorrow….
