Red sail spreading

thin thing scything
scum of cream foam
spreading to sand -
upturn, arc, splash
takes you down, in, under, rolling
salt on tongue,
wet palm absorbing,
darkened eyes,
retch the wash and 
heave up heavy, back on
board, feet flex, body sway, balance arms, 
wave and counterwave's
stretch and weave,
ride the red sail
cutting water in its
wind speed.
