dark lady

she lay on the sand

bare and brown

sides gently heaving

as she slept

cradled in the rays of the sun

long dark lashes

fanned smooth cheeks

I knew if I knelt close enough

the smell of fresh fish

the effervescent remains

of the seal’s rich lunch

would engulf us both

but I remained where I was

on a neighboring dune

not wishing to disturb

the dark lady’s dreams

of swimming in the deep
