Treasure Island

Tales from the Sea

Foam rises on the oceans surface,
rolling along with the waves.
As schools of fish swim In a pattern so delicate,
the predator watches from behind the protection of a sea rock.
Stalking in shadows, the gravitational pull brings in the tide.
Water levels rise.
Waiting for an opportunity,
A small ship is sunken off the coast.
Life jackets and driftwood float above and beneath the oceans surface bringing a new element to this neighborhood of fight or flight.
The school of fish swim toward a shimmering light reflected from the moon; down below.
The predator strikes.
The ships mats is last to be swallows by the sea as the foam dissipates in the neighboring sand.
As the sun rises,
a community mourns the loss of a scholar.
A company seeks answers to a missing crew.
The sea cries as part of it's body is enveloped in the sand.
All three treasures now lost,
find a new beginning elsewhere.
Bones become a warning saving another's life.
A shop becomes shelter to refugees underneath the surface.
The wet sand becomes a castle; easily molded from the mind of a child.
All things concluding that once one purpose ends, another is destined to begin.
As nightfall approaches,
Foam rises on the oceans surface.

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
