Turning the world upside down by 

Fresh salt tang scents the delicious white noise of surf on rock –
irregular boom and thump
unexpected quiet – pauses
Never turn your back on the Sea
She is inexorable and quick
faster than you think
Slams, knocks and pulls
A short bubbled tumble before you’re pressed into the polished rocks
fade into icy blackness

I wake from this, standing – face tinted orange with the day’s new light

Dawn feels like days ago and I’m wearing potential’s golden glow
The world looks different from here
huge and at once tiny
My effect on it? The same.

(Written at Ness, May 2012)
