    Cool wet sand forms the shape of my feet
    As I stand watching the movement of the sea
    Evening tides crash against my legs
    Then, as if by magic
    The great sea retreats into the vastness

    I am in awe of simple things
    Steady things
    Like the sea and its tide
    Since the first wave of a new earth
    The tide rolls in…the tide rolls out
    Every day
    All day
    Simply
    Steadily
    Strong winds only accelerate the pace
    But the movement goes unchanged

    I wish to be as the tide
    Consistent
    Unmoved by a curious atmosphere
    On my course in spite of a jealous moon
    A tide unflattered by the warmth of a teasing sun
    Steady

    Arriving whole
    A wave of many dimensions
    Leaving almost instantly
    Making its mark
    From shore, to shore, to shore
