White Sands

by Kitty Cat Lady   Oct 8, 2019

Thundering clouds and rumbling waves
Crushed the bones of those who were brave
Sweeping them into a tidal roar
Sinking them right to the ocean floor

So as you enjoy that beach so white
Spare a thought for the
fishermen's plight
Their bones were ground by the storm so hard
And now you lay on the sea's

    This is like my third time reading this, and I admit too, that it wasn't what I was expecting from the title necessarily. It's stunning how you can pack such emotion, voice and depth in these two stanzas. It's beautiful to think of those who love and spend so much of their time on the water, and we may just see it as a vacation spot and nothing more. There's a certain respect and reverence even that I feel fishermen have, those who wake early and know the tides etc.

    The "sea's graveyard" gave me chills!
    So well done.

    From the title, I did not see this coming. I wonder what else you may find with your imagination within oceans.
    I love this :)

    Miss Kitty, this is telling. You sometimes forget all the people that have lost their lives on these vast waters. Well done with this-

    Shells, rocks, glass and...bones. All ground to sand. The Maldives will never look appealing again so thank you, Kitty!

    All the best
