High Tide, Low Tide This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

the ocean curls and churns,
extends and retracts,
constantly moving, stretching, reaching.
it batters the shore and bellows a roar
crashing against rocky cliffs.
I stand still and watch.

pink seashell,
glimmering under afternoon sun,
half buried in a puddle of sand.
the ocean licks the shore,
attempting to grasp at this
forgotten treasure,
only to fade into scorched sand
as bleached and dry as bone.
I stand still and watch.

placid water lays flat in the rivets of my palm.
ocean laps at sandy shores,
and milky clouds break
over calm skies.
I stand still and watch.
