Lines in the Sand by mauveone.

Sitting on the Promenade,

watching the tide turn,

looking for what it has left behind.


The retreating sea has revealed

seaweed, rubbish, shining pebbles.

strips of sea water, glistening in the sun.


It has left patterns in the sand –

wavy lines. There are little mounds

appearing where tiny sea creatures

wriggle out from the safety of the sand.


Miles and miles of dunes and flat sand,

In this beautiful Bridlington South Bay.

     We will come again, we say.

NOTE: This is poem No. 2 in my series

of “LINES themed” poems, this one is

the South Bay at Bridlington, 11. 7. 2018.
