Tides

Seeing the sand through the water
Shade hiding danger beneath
The little fish nibble
Bigger ones use their teeth

Can’t explain the currents
Tranquil waters seem too good to ignore
Then waves wash over
Pushed to the ocean floor

The calming waters entice
Sea breeze bringing some sense
Now drawn to open sea
Nature never repents

Crave for the sensible
The horizon seemed so fine
Now searching for rocky waters
The view just a flat line

As the waves get more frequent
Set sail in the wrong boat
Seagulls dive at the unwary
Winners have no time to gloat

Sun glistened on the open water
Now waves obscure view of land
Fish dive for shelter
Others hide in the sand

Rocks seemed so alluring
All the life that they can hide
Now bruised and broken
Can’t fight against the tide

Seeming so cruel and heartless
Yet some seem to thrive
All get pushed against rocks
On a wave we feel alive

About markious72

Here I wish to let my strange and vivid imagination and opinions run wild. I do hope you like what you read. I would love to be a writer, I won't pretend otherwise. Although it is only in the last couple of years that I have realised it. I guess if it meant to happen it will. Happy reading, happier writing. :-)
