Isle of Palms

Ocean Unlimited

In a frenzy
She bites
Chunks of sand
Give way.
Falling into her open maul
Ever hungry
Greedy
Never satisfied.
Persistently digging
Away
Once firm foundation
Softened by her claws
Secure in her power to destroy
Controlling
Patrolling
Her lines,
She recedes into
Deceivingly gentle laps on the same sand
She capriciously tore apart
Hours ago.
Down the beach
A wave curl’s distance
Houses peep smiling
Over their dunes.
Parked respectfully away
From the leviathan
That takes
What she wants.
