Walking in sand,
polyphonic motion,
a response
to the song of the sea.

The lapping of waves
is but an invitation
to join the rhythms
of the rising song.

The sun answers the moon,
who sings her verses in the night,
music that shimmers
of cool mystery and allure.

The sunsong brings warmth and light,
calling the birds and the fish,
calling to the upright:
challenge the horizontal plane,
challenge the vertical plane—
challenge being particulate
by being instead the wave,
or by just being,
or being within being
