‘Crisscrossing  midnight grey lines
seams  coming apart
in little black eruptions;
shuddering breaths,
a vast beast
dying in agony

The sea gleams phosphorescent silver
lit by a moon in cloudless sky;
a soft dying light
ripples across the water
under  blinking evening stars

A warm, wet breeze
leaks little threads of mist
out of hellish cracks;
watery lines of yellow appear
under scudding silver clouds

Choreographed by the breeze
those born of wing meanders,
in vivid relief against the grey,
the aura-like glow of day’
