For today’s Poetry Friday, hosted this week by Dori Reads, I’m sharing an original poem, written by moi:

Like Waves

Like waves, we lap
upon the shore,
licking the
bare feet
of life.

Tides turn,
we retreat,
slide across the sand
and out to sea. Sometimes
we sink ourselves
into the
deep.

The moon
tugs at us, cajoling,
sometimes roaring,
or gently rolling,
she shimmers
us back
home.

Our dreams,
desires, loose stones
within us, are pointy, sharp.
We roll them, smooth
them, turn them
into jewels,
shining in
daylight.

Sometimes
we leave them
on the shore, but they
dry, turn dull,
exposed.

Other
times, we throw
ourselves against unmovable
cliffs. We tear them down.
Stone by stone,
we wear them
down.

~By Amanda L. Webster
