To the sea

To the sea

The road
to the sea
will take you places.
Silkworms and elderberries
Shells shut tight, eyes bright.
Bite gently down
full mouths, apples grow
green.
River run and sandy beach
Water, fire, linseed.
Green.
Possibilities and fields planted
within open reach.
Possibilities sellotaped for something bigger,
Something golden.
A golden lad
and his biscuits.
