Sandgate Ginko: Jonathan Hadwen

 

                                               the sun disappears behind a cloud
                                               a lone gull
                                               stamps its memory in the sand

                                                                         *

                                               pool of water
                                               underneath the tap
                                               ibis drinks its share

                                                                         *

                                               I tread so lightly through the rock pools
                                               still the fishes flee

                                                                         *

                                                tide comes in
                                                children and dogs
                                                rush to say hello

                                                                         *

                                                restless night
                                                the light is tired
                                                of being switched on

                                                                         *
