A Moment among Waves by Dara Llewellyn

A wave knocks me over—

I scrape along the sandy floor,

shells gouge my knees, 

salty water takes my breath.


Washed over by each succeeding wave,

I fall limp in the sand.

The ocean is too strong for methen

a pause in the waves—and new breath comes.


The ocean lets go, a wave at a time.

I pull up, strength returns.

I stand and move, striding ashore,

salt water running down and away.


Safe on Mother Earth once more.
