Ghost Ocean

by The Cheesesellers Wife

Waves throw up on the shore
remnants of ocean lives
tangles of plastic
debris from both sides
of a blurring boundary.
Revealing hints of the diversity underneath
and of the death we impose.

In  Inspiration’s furnace
Poets work and strive
To create a Truth like glass
Clear, transforming
A window to other.

Envelops, encompasses
Is made of a material
That becomes rigid
And shatters at a single sound.
