Allowance

My prints are visible for now as I press the soaked sand
Breathing in the cured sea air
I hear the silent roar of its mighty movement
Disobedient curves imbuing in an aquamarine blue 
Rhythmic grains of tamed shells
So violently arranged in a thing of beauty along the beaten shore
One should feel powerless against its perimeter 
As the constant ascension changes the beach slowly over time 
So to do I feel an ever so mellow shift of mind 
The sea is an ever so predictable place 
With an unpredictable aim 
Every bit true for life

    Although the patterns of the shells on the shore are always changing, we know there will always be a new scene the next day. Yes, the sea is predictable and going to the shore always seems to restore my mellowness. I like the way you compare the sea to life, Laura. Beautifully written with insight and meaning! Love, Carolyn
