September 17*

it all depends on
         the clarity of water
         the frequency of waves
         the inclination of beach
         the mix of sand/gravel/rock
         the color of sky
         the angle of sun

         where i stand
         and other things
                   which i cannot tell

                  (such as the sound of color that day)
