A little hole on a wet sandy beach resounds with the sound of the sea. The fullness of the sea merges and becomes one with a tiny hole in the ground.

My finger digs deep. 
First there is wet sand
then water spurts up from below it
like a spring. 
I put my ear to it.
It is the boom of the sea. 
A tide breaks over me, 
my body surges seawards.
