We hold the day,
My sand-whipped hand
You turn and say,
“Catch me, catch me if you can.”
A windy walk
A windy laugh
A windy day
A windy way
Wind takes my hand, tugs your hair
Wave sprays the beach in the salty air
The heaving pebbled stone they rake
They rumble with the tumble beat and break
Will you take my sight?
This sun-filled joyous day
Light throws threads across a tear blue sky,
White ripped wisps, the passing clouds they fly.
It’s all white
It’s all blue
It’s all a game
We know and play
We laugh and say,
“I love the way you spin in air.”
the sunshine blinks,
the gold still molten in your hair.
