Real life always flows in
Covering the pictures stoked in the sand
Joyful fleeting thoughts
Faces and messages
Knowing but hoping no wave will come.
Sometimes just 10 minutes of closeness and calm
Often not enough to reach the school gate
No stage setting or plans can hold it back
The tide of time
Cast aside by the young
