Coastal Sounds

Coastal Sounds
by Marcela Griffin

At the edge of the sea
the unmistakable sounds are
constant, yet changing
between the roar of
the curling wave, rushing,
racing, surging to the
edge as if an urgent
call relentlessly beckons the rush.
Then swishing, it laps along
the shallow shore
calmly waiting
for another rush.
Each wave curls and breaks
into the pure white foam
as a snow avalanche
raging down,
agitating the core that holds it,
shouting, Here I am!
Misting, rumbling through,
while carrying new
life to shore.
