    SEA JAZZ

    Sea Jazz

    Sea jazz is…

    The rolling crash of shoreline cymbals
    At each salty climax.

    The mnemonic note of the sax
    Wailing against a backdrop of azure blues.

    The frothy pianissimo of low tide
    Tickling the shells of my earlobes.

    The cool splash of the soloist conjuring up
    Billie, Dizzy, Ella, Sarah and the Duke
    With one sweet wave of melody.

    The heavy strum of the double bass leaving
    Soft, indelible prints in the rhythmic sands
    Of time.

    See? Jazz.
