Perfection

Perfection

written by: Marie-Louise McGuinness

Glittering waves in hues of grey,
crash loudly upon the sandy floor,
leaving fine doilies of bubbling foam,
perfect in their construction,
like delicate webs from a spider,
or a doting grandmother’s crocheting,
displayed proudly for
just a moment,
before being swallowed wholly
in the next greedy gulp,
of a seaweed mouth
spitting forth frothing, salted saliva
in return,
to create perfect new patterns,
like lacy snowflakes,
that melt on eager tongues
of excited children.

Fleeting magic,

terribly temporary,
like all good things.
