Weekend writing prompt #96 #Seashore

D4631CFA-DE16-46A5-BCEF-4A0C06B21981

She stands alone above the shore,

where waves roll in, roll out once more

wet shingle sings throughout the night

reflecting beams of pale moonlight,

while those who visit from the land

leave loud footprints in the sand

each brief message only lasts one day

till every trace is washed away

like their dwellings built on banks of clay.
