Intrigues of the Sea
Salt drenched sands shift and disappear
Under the smooth caress of the lazy tide;
Dying foam lingers, the waves subside,
Musing, a traveler is mesmerized...
Silent and still, he stands in the pier.
Youngest in nature yet older in birth
Then the stars of the night and day,
The water collides and sends up a spray
Over rocks that sprinkle the edge of the bay;
One marvel of many adorning the earth.
The day's strife reposes, our traveler embraced
By the youthful, pure, refreshing sea;
The wind in his face is so carefree,
He wonders - is this reality?
Reluctant to part he leaves with no haste.
