Sea Lavender

 

Limonium Nashii Small.

 

1.

 

bunch of lavender, dry

picked at the edge

of the sea

 

2.

 

at high tide, overcome

by salt water, linear

leaves buffeted

as rags, tattered purple papers

echoed in oil-slick

mirrors of foam

 

3.

 

on-shore breeze, stiff

sprays of Sea Lavender

tremble
