Crossing the causeway



Grey  strippled silver in the sun

fish are flashing

far mirages shimmering

one giant horizontal tree

grey shows shapes

prehistoric pachyderms on the shore

white against grey

now like ancient caves on a cliff face

a mushroom rises large against the sky


the caves disappear and roofs appear

on shapes like buildings

roofs side by side

sandy shores in front of trees

now separate beings

the mushroom grows separated legs

towering tall

cell towers appear

signs of humanity

nature is lessened

imagination submerges
