The Shore

The Shore

written by: John Drudge

 

The big wave breaks
On an amber sunset
Big and rolling
Over the crest
Of eternity
I have come to terms
With inevitability
And broken down
The marrow of resistance
I have ridden new forms
Of creation
Through holes
Punched in time
And now I rest here
On the shore
With you
