Breakwater II

by Jem Croucher

 

Casting long shadows in the late October sun
Breakwaters deep in the sand
Wood smooth and moulded, seasoned by salt
And carved by the sea’s mighty hand

Green seaweed covers its old weathered joints
Crustaceans on seaward end
Its long arms reaching down to the sea
From the beach it seeks to defend
