Life throws us twists, turns, and speed bumps all along the journey. These waves of challenge offer us the opportunity to roll with the punches and show our true strength. They also often create trying times with tears and heartbreak.
Up and down, in and out,
moving with such force,
they ripple through time.
Visitors stare off, gazes suspended,
enjoying the turbulence from afar;
others run, jump, and play within.
The colors dark blue,
fade lighter as they reach the shore,
bouts of white surface, reaching the end.
Swoosh, one moment,
then silence the next:
nature’s patterns unscripted.
Get too far in, you’ll find the waves massive,
but take a step back,
they won’t look so bad.
