Low Tide

i stand at low tide, heart receding
my toes squishing gushy sand
tiny skyscrapers rise up and fall
toes press downward
seeking purchase
i look out and fee the mudflats
teaming with the small creatures of life
digging their way deeper
to find a tiny surge of water
the solace of home
a thimbleful of water
so trivial
so significant
my heart lies thirsty
as I dig down further
seeking my own surge.

  1. Always room for more and more self improvement, isn't there. Lovely imagery here.

  2. This is powerful.... I love the image of digging deeper. Great for introspection. I love it!

    1. I have been in an introspective space lately---Thank you Robert!
