a sea named after you

Are all mornings mother of pearl beside the Coral Sea?
All mornings are mother of pearl beside the Coral Sea.
Mother of pearl morning beside the Coral Sea.

on a salted breeze

smell of toast about to burn
sunrise remains
a thin line of silver
wet horizon
sealed shut with cloud
expectant surfers look out
for a barrel in the break

"You are beside a sea named after you."
texts my Mother.
