A viewpoint

For yesterday’s retrospect,
take the measure of a thin line
between shore,
and swallowing sea;
tie as flexible as a reef knot.

And for the present,
there’s a path that heads on,
step by step
to a secluded, elusive coastline;
waves eroding the edges
of your topical island.

To see the ageing face is one thing,
yet to climb above this, is life risen
like some first glimpsed,
memorable, sunlit chalk cliffs.
