The ocean is most splendid on a rainy day, I suppose.
Everything is gray.
The sky meets the sea and blends
Into a watercolor picture,
And fog obscures the horizon.
The ferry rolls in
Steered by turbulent waves.
I am waiting, standing on weak boards
Dampness soaking through my thin shoes
I breathe in the ocean spray and taste the sea foam
Salt on my tongue.

Do you think it could possibly be one of the best new poems of 2013?
