Juggernaut

And so we plough out
into the rough sea,
A granite juggernaut
exploring.

Ancient cliffs stretch ancient aches
in waves they watched for years.
Moored boats are crushed and crunched,
Then lost forever somewhere underneath.

Loosely built cliff top homes tumble
down in wood, glass and bricks,
To join the wrecks as we continue
to surge forward ever ever.

We watch it all from Icart Point,
Sampling balsamic vinegar ice-cream,
As unlikely as this island vessel.
The day clear but no sight of land ahead.

When people first found the sea they must
have wondered what so much water was
doing in one place and waded in not
realising its size and shape and depth.

Now we plough out
into the rough sea,
A granite juggernaut
exploring.
