i miss

i miss

the tingle of salt in my nose
and the sweet stench of dying kelp
the grit of sand trapped under my feet
and the brilliance of maple leaves
the rush of wind off the sea
and the warm kiss of sudden spring rain
the soft girl-child i used to be
and the peace of sitting among the driftwood
