The ocean waves lapped the shore.
First one, then one more.
Faster and faster the tide rolled in.
Nature’s patience growing thin.
The billowing wind turned into a gale.
The current stronger than a blue whale.
Brine-tipped waves battered the land.
The power of the sea, frightening yet grand.
Finally, the clouds parted, the sky turned blue.
The beach, again, safe for me and for you.
