each time I see Gigli’s “Girl On The Beach”
i ask this photo more than one question
soul of that inner girl, I yearn to reach
touch heart of every heart retained within
is it Mother with whom you are displeased?
or is your almost frown due to hot wind?
grandpa bite your right cheek behind the trees?
were ancestors beneath your feet summoned?
what lifts your hands to bare your cotton slip?
hidden harmonizing agents that glow?
do tides of fear ride larger waves that rip?
does emerging from sand help you to know…
…Great Mother gives us all to Gods at birth
Replenishing our blood through seas on earth.
