Ocean’s Alive by Stephen Jacobson

the emerald sea washes against the jagged
rocks in successive attempts. crashing and
displaying a mighty show of force while
polishing and smoothing the craggy shoreline.
the air tastes of saltiness and the sea gulls
rampage the sky, circling around for morsels
of food. the golden fiery orb bears down while
a gentle breeze offers a reprieve from the heat.
a myriad of sunken footprints cover the beach,
littered with sea shells and small crabs while
the tide is ebbed. life is measured and realized
to be precious and worthy of special regard.
