Ebb And Flow

rock collide wave,
a turbid cacophony.
sun elopes with infinitesimal granules of sand 
in sea spray mist.
wet the throat of santa lucia fir
to sing of the point piedras blanca lighthouse.
a pacific minaret,
spanish kissing french.
a passionate chaparral
yields to the responsive ocean.
thin fingers of sand caress
open legs of fog,
waiting for the responsive howl,
a lustful moan.
the fruit filled with juice
that waits to dribble
down the fingers and to the arms.
the oranges of hieronymus bosch.
cumulus rumbles mammatus cloud iridescence,
the breath of god in reams of scientific notation.
