Life Tossed By Waves In A Storm - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

Life stasis is a calm wave
swept breath beach
smooth sand tide swept.
Life storms preach
motion change dynamic fluid.

Lizzie Limpet should
have rocked on
exploration has benefits.
Clinging to a rock
is leave ever beached.

Staying clamped
in one place life caged
a stick-at-home
stuck stick in the mud
is denial lesson fixed.


Lizzie Limpet is a character in a story by Edith Annie Howes, a New Zealand teacher, visionary educationalist and writer of approximately thirty children’s books.
