Waves on the Beach of Life


      soft waves ripple the water,
               they come and they go,
           sprinkling seeds of fervent hope

   gentle waves tickle the sand,
            they come and they go,
       leaving dreams 
                   of rapture 

             Boastful waves CRASH into rocks,
    they come and they go,
           shattering dreams 
                           to  s m i t h e r e e n s

frantic waves expunge the sea foam,
         they come and they go,
                it does

    silent waves creep back to the sea,
they come and they go,
        a cupful of  
              tears in tow

--- I used alliteration & personification here :)

    Very nice one, Nikko,and it sure got a lot of replies for ya! I am so happy you liked my Poems are Children to me. It's really how I feel. I did it actually a long time ago. I had several I wanted to use, but I think it was the ONE free verse that I had, so it was the only one that qualified. Writing about writing is so fun. Can't wait to see your entry. It'll probably blow mine out of the water. haha. thanks so much for all your comments. LUv, andrea
