On Walking Towards The Sea
larrylark

Maintain a straight line,
 1
take time to look behind.
 2
You'll find its not straight.
 3
Beach ripples into furrows,
 4
engraved against weight of sand.
 5
Waves fall back on themselves,
 6
while swallowing hollowed out shells.
 7
Each worn smooth and manoeuvred by tides.
 8
Never brought ashore in the same place.
