Afternoon Shiver

It is meeting time.
Distracted by passers by,
Listen and observe.

I observe this one
Coming and going again.
The meeting goes on;

This one goes again.
My body soon shivers hard;
No explanation:

I’m indoors, it’s warm;
Winter has yet to strike here.
But still I shiver.

She returns once more,
A sweater now adorns her.
Shivering explained?

The Sea

I am the sea:
You can count on me
To transfer gravitational energy
From the moon to your coastal property.

I am the ocean:
Strong currents flow
Beneath my surface, moving
Marine life faster along their route.

My currents
Influence the weather;
Sometimes to your delight,
Other times my influence is to your dismay.

I am the sea:
Bound only by the shore,
Each crashing wave wears rock away;
My rip currents pull your sand to me, day by day.
