Before me
A petulant sea

Like sodden soldiers
March in lockstep

The granite coast
Relentless pursuit

Washing over
Vanquished beaches
Staking it’s claim


Gains relinquished
The sea retreats
Seeking the horizon

Breakers murmur
Their displeasure
Yet unvanquished

Waves roil restlessly
Implied bravado
Awaiting the morrow


About oldmainer

I am retired and live in southern Maine with my wife and two dogs of questionable origin. I created this blog as an outlet for my occasional opinions and random observations since my wife is tired of hearing them and, after 50 some odd years, probably with good reason. I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.
