Waves are…

On Sunday evening Jordan and I sat on the shore. While he read I sat and watched the waves.

I am making excursions into poetry, though I find it difficult to make whole pieces. I am content at the moment to let words shape themselves around themes and discover nuances I have missed or overlooked.

While I sat I attempted a poem about the waves. But the task became clearly larger than my ability, so I simply sat and pulled as many words as I could think to describe the waves motion. Here is my list:

Waves

Roll
Collapse
Crash
Fold
Beet
Wash
Tickle
Rush
Rock
Wander
Glide
Flood
Break
Retract
Form
Tip

Waves sound

Loud
Wet
Abrupt
Interrupting

…And that was all I came up with before we had to return to camp for supper.

    1. Yes! It is influenced by the specific moment. I though of adding words after, but then, that would not be from the moment. Good words. I was thinking of adding assault, attack, pillage. But the waves I was by did not have those qualities.
