this beach is my anthology; a blank canvas on the land. words ebb and flow just like the sea forming lines upon the sand. i'm lost among the dunes some days but when the shore's in view i ride the tide or catch the waves like would-be poets do.

Thank you Line. Whenever I attempt writing poetry, it's usually one of two things for me: The words either flow onto the page or I spend an age blocked behind 'the dunes'. :)
