On Looking at the Isles of Shoals

The Logic of the Sea and Me

The waves announce the names,
announce the names, announce
the names. The whole horizon

reveals an aura wrapped
around some islands which
create the body waking

within the sea, within
that space, within this heart.
I am that name, I am

the holy blue horizon.
Islands dot my body
stretched throughout this sea

of something for the lack
of better words I call
the hydrologic me.
