DAUGHTER

 

Curled like a starfish

My daughter bites her own tail.

Brought in by breakers

She rests on a sandbank.

I watch her breath

Awash in sleep.

The moon lights

Her watery face.

Stranded in dreams

She smiles in sleep.

I paddle in the shallows

Fall and swirl

In the eddies of her hair

Moonlit and fantastic

Gathering strength

From the turn of the tide.

 

In the early morning

I’ll leave her

Curled in froth.
