    Rise And Fall

Your frothy feet run onto the sand
licking up pebbles
and just a fast as you rise
you recede.

I love the sameness
I love the change

I hear the uncertainty in your coming
I hear the certainty in your retreat.

When I am filled with dread with what might be
I remember 
You rush in
but you always fall back.

I write on Fridays with a large group who inspire me. Only five minutes and without much thought to perfection. I write, prompted by one word that sends my thoughts to the keyboard and hopefully make sense.


  1. Beautiful, Gabriele..(how funny we're neighbours this week!)......I read something this week about us needing to be like water, to be able to overcome, and it really resonated with me, so I especially loved your post this week. (Thank you). Helen xx

  2. Love this poem! So simple but so beautiful!

  3. Enjoyed your poem from the perspective of the tide. Very cool.
