Coastal Heartbeats

Tue, 07/02/2019 - 21:49 -- A Finch

Powerful yet comforting,

Constant but intriguing,

The sea extends a hand to me.

 

Lifting me up, setting me down

As the waves around me frown, 

But the sea, it tends to me.

 

I’ve drifted far from town

Lost in earth’s blue gown

Yet onward the sea sends me.

 

The yellow moon lights up the way 

The mellow clouds above me sway

Now the sea begins to mend me.

 

At dawn the current returns me to shore

I ride the coastal heartbeats no more

So ends the trip the sea lent me.
