A Foray

A Foray

written by: Terry Riccardi

 

Walking along the beach, sand squishing between my toes, the incoming tide that keeps
coming closer, a little higher each time
Broken pieces of shell I wonder what lived in them
before the water surged them up onto the sand and dried up whatever was alive before
when they swam, hunted, were hunted, had babies, in their little world
that we never see or know or think about
wrapped up in our own immediacy until we too are washed up in a vastness
dwarfing our known universe
that goes about its own business
