Sea Change

There is comfort in a beach.

To gaze on stone worn down

To endure as sand.

Sheet metal folded like pastry,

Branches sculpted by time. People endure.


To hold a world of colours between fingertips,

A galaxy of grains on your palms.

Listening to each wave’s sigh,

as your own Breath That Will come,

However painful.


Watch cloud-made shadows lift

Bringing shimmering light. Wind

Making tears in your eyes.

An endless cycle,

Played out with the tide.

    Beautiful! I love wandering along the ocean – you really captured the feeling in both pictures and words!

      Thank you Amy. I love ocean wandering too. I lose myself in the moment, and find memories.
