Water Watchers | McKenzie Richardson

The waves the waves the waves the waves

crash against the shore

splash our feet as sand tickles our toes

rooted as we are to this spot.


The waves the waves the waves the waves

can’t free my gaze from the expanse

this seemingly infinite body before us.


My hand finds yours, fingers intertwined,

with you, I could stay here forever,

endlessly standing at the edge of the world.
