Ideas within the Tide

real footprint

Beads of wet
on grey wooden slats
reveal smooth foot prints
within pools of dew.

Purple veined hand
tames breeze ruffled pages,
etches black ink phrases
between blue lines.

Noon sun directly overhead
deck floor dry, tracks gone
forehead drenched
in streams of sweat.

Words flounder,
pen drags letters
as ideas dry up
like low tide sand.
