Ebb and flow

 As I walk along the sandy shore
And watch the waves go to and fro
 To  then return and go no more
Yet come again and ebb and flow
  The timeless rhythm of the sea
   Always will amaze me

That  rivers  always finds their way to sea
with no maps  to guide them  as they go
Yet  end in the ocean as they flow
Never fails to amaze me

That a monarch butterfly 
migrates  thousands of miles over land and sea
through windy skies it flutters by
A natural mystery 
That always will  amaze me

    It is amazing, all these precious things that we take for granted, Joseph. Funny how I wrote a children's book about the Monarch Butterfly and it's mystery of survival against all odds! Amazing! Always, Annalise

    this is a very good entry to the contest, Joseph!!! I think you chose some great topics: the sea, river and butterfly and all the lines so nicely rhymed.
