Mystery (Day 475)

Wednesday morning 
a mystery emerged 
over fatigue-green 
water  spreading edges
blurred  tossed 
an opaque cloak across 
the agitated sea
insistent  heated 
as a spurned lover
the loamy fog 
growing ever heavier 
until daylight broke 
wide open  casting 
a sudden shadow 
into the circling waves 
and darkness averted 
its face  blinking  
gasping beneath 
the unexpected weight
