The Waves

-by The Beach

Like waves, each one different

One rolling with a smooth, even flow

Another builds and moves with speeds out of control

There, that one

Don’t see it? Bam, knocks you down flat!

And the rip, roaring curl

Long, steady, determined.


Each, a special wave

Carrying her own uniqueness.

I am the beach

Vastness of sand

Showing lines from where the waves have come and gone

Indentations that weave in predetermined patterns

I sit and wait

They come

Each in their own time





Then, they are gone again

A part of a vastness so great and frightening

I dare not contemplate its depths

Bottle them up for safekeeping?

The thought crosses my shores

But the momentum of the waves,


Cannot be contained.
