Equine Swell

Lisa Cooper 1962 (United States)



Turbulence crashes ashore
Commissioned evermore
Salty foam in wake
Relish lees in break

Glide on crescent tide
Aqueous equine astride
Thunder amber sands
Bridle pelagic expands

Frothy stallion clave
Ferine tis storm lave
Brine kist canter flow
Incite turbulent undertow

Selene goddess moon
Lunar phased boon
Audacious lofty vendor
Urge neon splendor

Dusky azure slew
Oscillate multi-hue
Elemental minor chord
Chaos chases in accord
