Favorite Quote:
"Words are just emotion, cut into little pieces." -ECW

Colors swirl and churn and fade,
Bright azure and muted jade,
Golden light like darts to the deep
Where Eels swim and dark things sleep

The breakers pulse like beating drums,
They neither go and neither come,
Always moving: in and out
They sway to a song of fear and doubt

The beach: of white and golden sand
Dotted with the shells of crabs and clams
O, the dance of the Sea is always in motion
The creation of God: His Sapphire Ocean

This poem is about a specific beach, actually. It's in my hometown, and I really miss it. (La Jolla Cove, San Diego, CA)
