Take two – Afric McGlinchey

for Cian and Kuma

 

Boy and his dog, racing on the beach,

two silhouettes, two elements of blue;

bond physical as friction, invisible as air.

 

A clemency of light from out of cloud

dazzles over slanted synchronicity;

boy and his dog, racing on the beach.

 

Their urge to run leaps from foot to foot,

and saturated sand exhales its pleasure in response,

physical as friction, invisible as air.

 

Effortless, electric grace, like cormorants

on a rock, unfurling wings;

boy and his dog, racing on the beach.

 

I watch the light dance over them;

kaleidoscoping memories

physical as friction, invisible as air.

 

They fly, a fastening of energy,

to the highest dune, a pinnacle.

Boy and his dog, racing on the beach,

bond physical as friction, invisible as air.
