The Tide 11/17/14

  • The tides are rolling into the bay,

    Slapping and splashing against the rocks,

    The tides are rolling into the bay,

    Pulling in & pushing out the sand,

    Something special is happening today,

    On the horizon the sun gradually fades,

    The cool breeze persuades the grass to dance,

    The fish of the sea jump above surface wishing for wings,

    The colorful birds sing,

    White clouds float by morphing into & out of the familiar and unfamiliar,

    The tides are rolling into the bay, sweeping in pieces of ship wrecked pasts,

    Tales of love,

    Bottles of rum,

    Sweat & tears for treasures suken below,

    Villains, heroes & sheroes unsung,

    The tide has rolled in and it is floating out to sea,

    Taking with it a piece of me.
