A Coastal Walk (2) - Poem by Phil Soar

I took a walk along a coastal path
Where the sounds of waves that crashed upon the shore
Was music to my ears

And the wind that blew across the cliffs
Refreshed my face with a cold mist
As I soldiered on

Walking among heather and moss
Through fields where many walkers have crossed
I kept the ocean in sight

The view for miles kept my senses alert
Watching my steps as erosion had made an impact
And yet the sea retreated

On another day, I may have witnessed its force
As the sandstone gave way and was at its mercy
But not today

I took this walk with nothing on my mind
But took away so many endless dreams
And I WILL return

But not today
