Crossing the Tay Bridge

Early sunlight across vast water
is a sea into which i fall;
centreless,
through all its extent it is calm, aqueous
as the firth beneath it. Under high, patterned clouds,
in a liquid unfurling of radiant light,
i am solsequium,
girasole,
hardwired
heat-seeker.
Helpless, i lift my face to the sun;
we greet each other.
