Stand Firm: Tanka.

by Martha L Shaw

As the tide comes near,

I stand on the sandy shore.

Though I cannot swim,

I remain and feel no fear.

Its power and voice amaze!


My toes become wet,

The wave crashes and retreats.

I am without harm .  . .

Overwhelmed by its beauty!

I sigh, I smile, I am changed!
