Opalescent Sea
by Michael Escoubas

When we met
I felt a turbulence
like the shimmering blue
of dawn mixed with sunset’s
scorching yellow-red,
and yet,
as my feet sink in sand,
as wind-whipped foam
dampens my face and clothes,
my heart will not let go
of love.

I see you in distant twilight
striding long,
silhouetted in sunbeams
an image on a coin—
and like the roiling sea,
your scattered light
everything around you …
we flow as one in opalescent blue.
