Dancing at Sea’s Edge – Poetry by Kathleen Scavone

At home with the world by the sea
At water's edge I wear a lightness-of-being
Grace overtakes me, flowing to an inner calm
Strolling the lace-scalloped, brine scented continent's edge
I'm composed and unruffled as the godwit
Lithesome as the curl of a wave!
Pelicans patrol the backdrop, 
Almost-but-not-quite skimming sea's surface,
 Generating an airborne ballet. 
My frame of mind ascends
like the joyful dance of a cresting wave!
