The rocks hidden by the rising tides carry their secrets with them.

Waters make everything vanish;

Birds have flown to higher grounds

and the vegetation gets masked.

 

Then, the tides will be pushed back once more,

The birds will come back to feed on the stranded prey.

The trapped pools will get saltier as the temperature rises

and grasses will get their daily allowance of sunlight.

 

The rising tides wash everything away.

Only the tops of the highest points remain.

Drowning the back and forth motion of the waves.

The waters as dark as the setting night.

 

Over and over again,

the cycle will repeat itself.

It traps those who stray.

And obliges them to wait.

 

The moon forever holding onto the Earth,

Manipulates the ocean, according to its scheme.
