Chilton Chine

Where land meets sea

the cliff edge sprawls, beware rabbit holes,
crooked sign posts point to nowhere,
in this a topsy-turvey habitat.

Where land meets sea

faded sea-pinks, sorrel, marestail
brave the restless sea-wind
above the tight tufted grass.

Where land meets sea

waves lace the shore with cream
and further up the winding chine,
a depth of green disappears into dark,

while a red-hooded boy clambers up the slipping steps
and the sea, triumphant, waits to claim the land.
