Salt Sea Womb

The sea drums slowly upon the shore
in a steady pulse thrown down
on the resting beach,
the sound lifted from the sand
to the shale and green tree canopy
spread over the narrow strip
of mountain above water,
a sea message sent
to the center of the earth
with a returning song
of darkness to light,
root and rock’s calling
to the salt sea womb,
changing, changing,
yet always the same,
the tide, the pulse,
the sound of life
and the mystery.
