I crossed

The Pacific Coast Highway

I jumped to the sand

And

I ran

I ran south on the soft pebbles

As fast as I could

I leapt from the jetty

Into the tide pools

Watching families look

For

Life

Starfish

Sea anemones

I kept running

Until I had to swim

Shallow blue green water

Awaited me

Full

Of crabs, lobster

And

Eels staring at me

I kept swimming

Until

I reached

A

Manmade shore

And then

I walked

Home

Utterly spent

The sea had embraced me.
