She ran to the water
And threw flight upon it.
But the surf retreated,
And the board dipped,
And gravity took her back.

She had flown,
If only for a moment,
And the spray and the
Wind on her skin and the
Palm-leaves waving
Stopped at

But she stood,
With sand on her wrists
And saltwatered hair,
And as the surf returned,
She ran
And threw flight upon it.
