Ebb

There once was a time
when I let
sand get foisted under my nails,
to grub for colored
conches and arks.

I ran and treaded on
the shying trails of waves.
The shells started
breaking under my feet,

I let go of things,
even the ruby-throated
hummingbirds I dreamed
to follow.

The ocean
is a god in motion.
