Edge of the Water – Eclectic Corner #9

The edge of the water
coming right up
Can’t see where it starts
Was there a mess up?
 
The water retreated
The certainly heated
And I found there
Was nothing like here
 
In my memories
Where I can do as I please
I find that the beach
Is well within reach
 
Instead I have found
There is more sand that abounds
And there is nothing to see
As the water retreats.

This poem was inspired by Eclectic Corner #9:  Edge. The picture is from the Great Salt Lake, Utah where we’ve had a very dry last few years even for our desert home. The lake’s been retreating for a while.
