the ocean (a poem riff)

the ocean (a poem riff)

male tourist walking along empty beach and admiring view on ocean

wading along the shore
looking for shells
not sure what I might find
or what I am looking for

in sand the footsteps stretch
soft sandy trail
tracing my path
so others may know

my passage fades
within the writhing tide
memories erased
within the compass of time

and the moment-

I will turn
into those waves
to be swallowed
from whence I came
