ignition

Sea-rocket (Cakile edentula Hook.)

~

clumps of Sea-rocket

are splashes of lime on sand

missiles from lavender flowers

~

pepper to tongue

pungent breath of Cakile

cardamom and caraway

~

flavour our laughter

giggles of gulls cross sober sand

intervention in sluggish lives

~

launches from Cape Canaveral

moon-walking on the beach

splash-downs in Sargasso Seas

~

most days are moth-eaten –

paper cuts, missives, e-mails to answer

problems, resolutions without teeth

~

the seawind smooths its sand

begs for someone to take a stick

scratch out a love song

~
