On a Beach

Emotions shift, mimic

Fluid landscape of the beach

Droplets of peace, satisfaction, confidence

Grains of sand amidst

Ocean of sorrow, guilt, fear

Winds of chance interactions

Splash hope upon the shore

Waves of memory swamp her

Crash down foaming shame

Gentle breezes lap warm love

Against skin of toes, shins

Hurricane gales unleash

Torrents of regret

Eroded, transformed,

Resilient, recognizable:

Beach, ocean, and she remain
