The ocean lifts its weighty hand and drags
Its white claws across the brown sand --
Pulling some to its bosom and sparing the rest,
Striking again this time with a fist.
Relentlessly pounding at the shore,
The Ocean howls and suddenly subsides,
Caressing, instead, the granules
As if to apologize.
Returning the sand to its rightful place,
Trying to mend the scars it left
On the shore's face; leaving behind no evidence,
Not a trace.
All work is property of Andrea Bierly.
