inspired by Joy Austin’s mini-lesson
It is so bright here — the dominion of the sun.
The light (it pulses) streaks across the sky, across the sea.
(Sea sky and sky sea)
I have climbed my way into a sea-hewed hollow.
From my seat, I feel the waves
Reach out to me, trembling
(Oh how heavy light must be).
