Random hide and seek

Searching the sea
for tidal memories,
flotsam moments
flow in and out
in random hide and seek.

High beached
on stormy recollections
stranded debris,
rounded by the weathering of time
and lack of context,
bruises but does not pierce
or, as tar, taints its sticky presence
over semi-precious present.
