Spinnaker Dance

Photograph by Bob Newcombe

In the blink of the photographer's eye
Clack of shutter catches the moment
When crazy rainbows whirl round the sky.
One, two, three spinnakers ripped loose
- ropes holding hands in the wind -
Flirt with freedom, dance round mainsails.
An instant later they will be flotsam, debris.
Just another spill as someone's sail
Slaps the sea.
