Revisiting Tiny white horses

by Jem Croucher

No 5 of 12 in the Jemverse series ‘Back to the sea’

There are tiny white horses out there
Scampering daintily over the hills
That form as the wavelets tumble
Rolling over a sandscape
Glistening in the evening sun
And the wind seems to have dropped
I can taste the salt and feel
the warmth of a setting sun

bright in my face and radiant
with the fulness this near to
perfect day has afforded
Glistening in the evening sun
And basking in its warmth
A fresh revelation of something new
Heralding a season where we shall live again
And sleep no more.
