When the tide goes out

Suddenly the cool water is almost gone - too far away
All of the things that were so simply, absolutely, here
are just as absolutely out of reach.
You blinked,
and the light went out of the sky.
The wind isn't friendly anymore,
and the sand is no longer soft.
It feels so personal. 
It feels so impersonal.
Where is the blanket that you kept meaning to put in the trunk?
