Sand hooked drift

 like a broken antler

in the quick soft silt 

cleft shallow & deep

to twist & haul

on the blue sea shore 

at the ragged rift

jagged jut

pull writhe belly taut

in bend at knee

break on the swell breeze

back bent in shoulder swirl

curls in lift to heave

to cleave

stancing in double hand

held in slack holding loose

never releases

but pulls on the swivel

unslacking till torn

wrenched up aloft to the sky.

What a lovely and utterly unique language has been endowed to you. I enjoy the stilted yet thought provoking flow of your constructs, and also the arcane sensibilities.
"Drift like a broken antler" certainly sets a peculiar tone of living, and the happenstance of one's journey as we travel through this life on our road to eternity.
Richard
