A Standing Rock In Water

Along the huge sandy beach A large rock is seen It stands out in the sand When the water comes to shore The huge rock is seen from the top Making the rock look smaller Yet when the water leaves the sand Then the rock looks larger No one knows how the rock Got on the sandy beach

Hello Thomas Wells, A huge rock on a beach is seen. So when the water comes to shore , the rock looks smaller. How a rock got there is a mystery. Your welcome. Take care my friend.Have a nice day my friend.

A simple poem but delightful. I really enjoyed hearing how this rock changes its look according to the tide!

Hi Darlene - how are you - hope you are keeping safe - a refreshingly delightful poem. The oceans have been around for millions of years, so the rock was probably even bigger but the waves, currents and lap of the sea have weathered it. Well penned Darlene, Blessings, Jennifer.

Hello Jennifer Proxenos, yes the rocks were bigger then. It is amazing to see a lonely rock stand in the water looking big then looking small. Blessings and Hugs Darlene

Hi Darlene... hope you are well my friend.?? I really like this a lot.. for me this poem is a metaphor, rather than a picture of nature.. I therefore like it for my own images that you convey in the words Thankyou Best Damo...
