Aegean water washes

In the cupped hands
of the sea a boy is been born.
Olive-green waxed seaweed tangle
around his babyish limbs.
His water mommy caresses his tangerine
fragile body and soft Aegean water
washes washes kisses him
with soft aquamarine tongues.
The precious beauty of this secret moment
s c r e a m s out as the boy
opens his eyes and sees a world coming
into being
just for him.
