Not because the waves
Had come perilously close
Nor because the wind

Ocean breaking at my feet
Along a shoreline
So battered over time
Even were the air at rest
It would seem storm buffeted

Of the golden window light
The frontage seems
To brace against the weather
Like I sometimes do in a storm
Arms outstretched
Head on into the rippling wind
