your blue-green waves
tug me from the soft sand & beckon me into your lapping waters,
where I splash until my skin is pebbled with goose-pimples

I slog through the water, logy with exhaustion
having spent hours drowning in your pounding waves

once more on the sand,
I’m warmed by the sudden eruption
of Volcanus heat from your undertow.
