A poem about the sea.

Waves

 

Look

The sea

Here it comes

Building and rising high

Cresting, swarming, flowing and then

Crashing against the sand

Spreading itself far

Drawing back

Pulling

The cliffs

Dowsed with spray

Violent torrents of waves

Like a hundred crying chicks

Jumping for the worm

Then settling down

Feeding away

Calm

The sound

Breathing in silence

Rising and falling chests

Shingles dragged into the flow

Here comes a breaker

We brace ourselves

For impact

Soaked
