sea change

sea change

went to the sea
a distant storm
waves disturbing calm white sand
water carves unstable land

the storm’s not yet here
or so some say
further off
not today
we’ve felt the wind
caught the rain
seen the fury
felt the pain

can’t happen here
we know that lie

some try to keep the wind at bay
yelling into stormy seas
voices drowned
or swept away

signs atop the dunes
washed away
new signs
will be needed soon

landscapes change
from violent rage
and then slow growth
replacing age

the old is washed away
making way for new

some choose to ignore the flag
be in the rough
to feel the change
to ride the waves

went to the sea
had to go
to see the change
to feel the wind
to hear the waves

see change
