The Battle For The Strand

Sand dunes line the ancient beach
the tempest of  an earthbound sea
stand steady against their liquid match
with whom they vie for victory

waves bleed white foam frenzy
born to fight and die upon the shore
comrades pull them back to sea
gull’s cries lost amid the roar

Water will take over in short order
if south wind be our friend
and push us ever so much harder
until we’ve overrun the strand

What one wave takes another brings
The dunes stay as they are
back and forth go battle lines
in nature’s border war
