Draw near and listen—
the interminable din—
thunderous and raging,
spindrift riven from
graybeards’ snowy crests,
that plunge at journey’s end,
their whitest teeth laid bare,
to gnash with boundless fury
on patient rampart of
unyielding stones,
their mottled skin
to smooth and polish,
that these might stand,
in reverent alarm,
never to be forgotten.

    Slipped past me I'm afraid, Donna. Yes, waves crashing on rocks. I guess I could have just said it that way, huh?

    Skat, thanks so much for your continuing favor and support. Writing poetry demands a sacrifice of life energy, so it's nice to get something back to replace what's departed.
