The cemetery sea
Brings bones with the tide
To the resting place
Long journey’s end in this twilit zone
From seeds to saplings to stranded on stone
The end of the line but at least not alone
Each with a story of foreign soil
Alien birdsong
Seasons reversed
Roots, routes
Leaves, returns, until this is what’s left
United by branching currents
Connected by rips
Steeped in salt, sinking into soil
Becoming the bones of a new land
