The Rock and The Water


The small rock sits in the sand,

Its surface rough and muted.

The tide approaches up to the rock, and back to the sea.

Up and back, up and back,

The water washes over the rock, smoothing its surface.

The water washes over the rock,

The surface is smoothed and begins to shine, a vibrancy appears.

Together the rock and the water are bonded, they have chosen this place to exist.

They create a different beauty, one that is etched over time. 

They change simply by being together.

Still, the water is the water, and the rock is the rock.
