The Loop


Lily M.

The waves crash onto the sand

Alone there must be thousands

Of tiny grains sand

The ocean ebbs and flows

Never to stop

The loop continues over and over

It’s the cycle that will never break


The seagull looks into the water edge

As he stands on the ledge

And watches the movie that never ends


The waves are restless 

They have barely changed

Not a single altercation

And it never takes a vacation

The water never slows


The wind howls and waves crash

I can the sandpipers making a dash

My nose runs 

My breath is cold

Though I can’t take my eyes off what I behold

The beautiful sigh of the ocean

The water lashes out on the rocks


The sea calls in its endless time

I know it will never die

It’s the constant that never will stop
