The sea played with the man on the beach

as he walked along the sand

blue turning to sky blue then white

to catch the sun worshipper and give him a fright

But after a while the man came up to the sea

in an attempt to dip his toes

he put his feet into the blue

and in an instant froze

for while on the sand, the air was warm

the water instead, was not

it was like a bowl of ice cubes

and he was rooted to the spot

the hermit crabs signalled to the oncoming sea

about the beachcombers feet

and then in an instant

the sea beat a retreat
