tireless pulse

glass necks clink, mouths of salt and lime

yellow brightness overhead, air warm and close

razor-sharp horizon of blue meets blue

stretch of hidden shore, bodies uncovered

effervescent with hope that these frothing waves

will roll and roll and roll

through fizzy sips and days and nights

past that distant edge

through heady vagueness and crystal vision

into an eternity of aching sweetness

never to mar, never to flatten

for this thing is fueled by the cosmos

the glowing pull of the moon

the electric heartbeat of the stars

the tireless pulse of my will and yours

depths that render them one in the same

soles in the sand and souls in the sky

shared heat lapping with mysterious ease

through the ceaseless rhythm of eons azure

Hello. I'm Sophie, and I'm a writer of long tweets, short fiction, and mediocre poetry. My stories have been picked up by Ellipsis Zine, Popshot Quarterly, Mojave Heart Review, Lunate Literary Journal, Spelk Fiction, Moonchild Magazine, New Pop Lit, Elephants Never, two charity anthologies, and other publications. I was nominated for a 2019 Pushcart and was a finalist in the Lumiere Review 2020 short fiction contest.
