these rocks here are very old

they are heavy and dark and hard and twisted

they carry stories beyond my imagination

but within my knowing

.

i sit quietly amongst them

in the wave worn gullies

upon the daily debris

the stones and shells and general detritus

.

i sift the wet sand with my fingers

gaze up at the sky, your silhouette,

the patterns of barnacles and limpets and sky

the soft red underbelly of the jelly anemone

.

I add my own mark

I scratch and draw

emulating what I perceive to be

becoming part of history too
