With a graceful movement

He bows to her,

And then withdraws.

From time to time

He bestows gifts upon her;

But then takes them away

Without a word.

Defiant and mighty is he,

Yet serene and timeless is she.

Together they form a flawless combination.

When I am sad

I go to them,

And they comfort me.

Never seeming to catch him

They play tag.

He laughs at her,

And recedes.

He encompasses her fully

Yet she stretches beyond his reach

As he softly caresses her.

In his fury she remains placid,

Perpetually shifting her character,

Complimenting his ever-changing moods.

Together they lie like lovers,

Never leaving each other’s side.

If we could all be as content

As the surf and sand…
