Ocean Winds

There’s a wind

before first light

with cool air

through the window,

the long arms of ocean

reach the valley

as people along the river

surprise themselves

with ancient signs

drawn in ink

upon their skin,

of hidden life

below the river

and ocean winds

before first light.

    Again,Don, I love the way to bring in the reader with all his/her senses to FEEL the wind, in this case.

    Ocean Breeze has been a messenger throughout my life. Really liked the mystery of the tattoo reference… Sweet, my Brother.
