The Sea

The sea
                    Wanders in
                                                  Curls its fingers around a
                                                  Yielding isle of sand
                                                                           and reeds
                                                   The land
                                                                           crumbles
A wafer in the toothless maw
                 of creation
                 or destruction
                 or erosion
The reshaping of the earth
                 with soft, liquid hands.
