METRIC FIGURE (3), by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Veils of clarity
Last Line: Beneath the advancing ripples.
Subject(s): Seashore

Veils of clarity
have succeeded
veils of color
that wove
as the sea
sliding above
submerged whiteness.

Veils of clarity
reveal sand
glistening --
falling away
to an edge --
beneath the advancing ripples.
