Tide to Sea

Wed, 08/23/2017 - 16:03 -- zx150

The surface oscillates

Sunlight shimmers, shimmers, shimmers

Like a kaleidoscope, like a disco ball, streaming light back and forth, back and forth

Like a circle swirling on, on, on

Rise, break, fall

Rise, break, fall

Collide with the shore

Ships sail across the horizon

Moving past, cutting through

Glistening, shimmering over the water’s edge

As ripples ride away, ride away

Nowhere too near, nowhere too far

Look at a clean-cut horizon

Just ride like the, churn like the, rise like the tides to the sea
