Worship

Two nuns
On the sea shore
Stand
Apart from one another
Black wood posts
Mesmerised
By the sea god

One nun
With human failings
And weary legs
Sinks to the sand
And sits
like a child

A golden stripe appears
On the western horizon
A signal from the sea god
That he understands
Tiredness

One stounch sister
stays standing
And the sun
Sets
