She trudged through the briny water

vague sirens growing louder,

She scanned the corpse-grey horizon

Feeling her feet slowly sinking into

The grainy sand,

She got onto the board



She stood up, hair in her face

The wave came

Arms out wide

Rain goes down her cheeks

Lights crash behind in the sky

Back down she went

Calm, still, peace
