A pebble rides the tides

A pebble in the ocean
      rides the waves
The tides roar
     announcing their arrival.
Kissing the shore
     they withdraw
Only to return with the tide
      that flies it to the moon
Dauntless though
      the waters unknown
Reach for the stars
     a million years away
A pebble rides
     the ocean waves
And not always can
     the tides be heard
But silence could speak
     a thousand words
The tides could draw it in
     and swallow
Could kill enthusiasm
     leaving it hopeless
Then crush it's bones
     making it weary
Still taking the chance
     to go the distance
To explore the unknown
     and the unfamiliar
What lies ahead
      what's lost behind
Above the earth
     beneath the sky
A pebble rides
     the ocean waves


If all was light...then I would have never learnt the dark...from which such truth evolves
from which evolves the light...

I am very happy that I did not miss this one.
It would have been a shame not to vote for it.

Avanti--To vote for this is a pleasure...the majesty of the tide and the enormous circumference that it enfolds...you have said it so well!

A very unique perspective, AVANTI. It's something you don't think about, how a pebble could ride the waves. Very well written. Has my vote.

And I just want to say that I appreciate the time you took to read what I submitted and understanding. It helps me to know that there are caring people who can see beyond what is not so important and see that Love is what matters more than anything, especially when it is True Love.

Peace to you,  Geoffrey
