Earth’s shores

Earth’s shores
Those boundaries defined
As sand slips silently away
Neither land nor sea
A liminal place
Shape shifting
Where nothing is solid
Draws like the gravitational
Pull of the tide
To cast thoughts
In anonymity
To the waves
Yet closer in fragility ensconced
To the emphemeral nature
Of the spirit
Heard by the cry of the gull
And all of heaven above.

Inspired by a line in the book I am reading .
