Après la deluge

(Warden Point, Isle of Sheppey)

Fordidden Elysium down to
The beach by the
Pearly grey sea
Half receded.
The tree god's
Last defiant gesture of fertility.
In the soft disintegration of the land
The rapture of the held moment.
Slid and toppled
Grassy chunks of earth
Light, wet, autumn flooded green
Green against brown.
Two half fallen arboreal phalli project
From the side of the mud cliff.
