The wave was angry
tossing it's weight onto the shore,
the sand held firm, collecting a few shells,
in the process of shrugging off a
quite needless interruption.
"How can you be so resolved?"
the Sea asked, knowing within,
it's own life was awash in emotion.
"It's simple," the Earth responded,
"you learn to know what works,
and what doesn't,
and then you blink your eyes,
and realize, in a moment,
that life's a beach,
and you either adapt,
or become helpless."
