IMAGINE LOW TIDE
On a summers day
and no seals!
Imagine the hills
green and purple
and the sunset yellow
Imagine
low tide
gulls swooping squawking
and no fish
on which to feed
Imagine low tide
with pools of
limpid water grey
tinged green
no new
creeping tide
to enter there!
Imagine
the crabs – happy
skipping free
Imagine rocky cliffs bare
of bush
Imagination
is running free
Imagine
no waves to break
no wind to blow
spray whisps clean
Imagine
nothing there
to see!
that
tragedy
of nothingness
at low tide
why
would we walk there?
Imagine it all as it was
with life abundant
bright skies
and seals
laughing
at the fish
they chase
just for fun!
Imagine – having NO Imagination!
