not quite the sea

1 November 2010 Comments Off on not quite the sea

Standing at the edge of the water,
our eyes searching the horizon –
the water flows forever.
Tormented and strong when grey,
waves thundering upon the shore
smoothing sand into a flattened surface
solid like a stone.  Smashing and polishing
rock into small coins, velvety to touch.
Even in the calmest weather
the water is not still
yet it pacifies, that
rhythmic movement of wave over wave
in our not-quite-
the-sea sea.
