flirting with waves


image: google


walking along the shore line

the waves flirt with my feet

the froth licking my toes

i try to catch them in my hand

they leave behind their laughter

knowing they can never see me

merging into the sand 

going back to earth

i am stunned by the simplicity

amazed at mother nature's wisdom

i salute to her and continue to walk

now i try to flirt with the waves

  4. Ha, love the idea of flirting with the waves! They are elusive though, aren't they? (Just like some people. Smiles.)

  6. You have a lightness in this poem that goes well with the message. Some lovely images--trying to catch the waves in your hand. It is impossible to catch a wave--even in body surfing it is the wave that catches you. Thanks for posting this.
