2020 Wilderness Poetry Contest: the cliff, by Tony Reevy

the cliff

by Tony Reevy

where birds plunge

sharp splash

to feed

in the sea

where wet rocks

glisten deep black

like a heart

turning to darkness

where on clear

nights

with half a waxing

bone moon

white light

roils rolls

on ripples

between the waves
