Sandbars

completely disintegrated
I became whole
beauty within purpose
the first time your soul
washed over mine

you, a wave crashing
shattering me
a million grains mixed
swirling, swept up and away
you ebbed
rising into collapse
upon my shore, splashing

again, again
you formed then reformed me

an ever-changing
sandbar am I
now with you, the force
which shaped and made me

memories within memories
the grains of you, of me
became eddies
amongst the tide pools
of who we once were

  1. lovely imagery, i like the positive – with a recent experience i also think of the storm that tries to wash that sandbar away … it’s a delicate balance … a delicate mix …

  2. Love this one, Tara, especially the last bit:

    memories within memories
    the grains of you, of me
    became eddies
    amongst the tide pools
    of who we once were
