WPC: Endurance

September 17, 2014 Oregon 113


The sun, the sea, and the Earth




September 17, 2014 Oregon 023


Wave follows upon wave

Through  perpetual tides of change:

Coming in, flowing out,



September 17, 2014 Oregon 201


Deeper now, then shallow pools

Left in naked sand.



September 17, 2014 Oregon 204


Mighty basalt rocks stand since before

The times of man,

Testament that the Earth endures.


September 17, 2014 Oregon 186


Worn now, and rounded;

Encased in barnacle and mussel, 

Ornamented by algae,




September 17, 2014 Oregon 184


Holding microcosms of the sea;

Buffeted by endless waves

For countless days,

Filling uncounted years.



September 17, 2014 Oregon 125


Sentinels still standing watch along the coast,

As sun rises, blazes, passes overhead, and sets.



September 17, 2014 Oregon 011


The sun, sea and Earth endure

As tides of life swim, walk, crawl, and fly

Between sand and sky.


September 17, 2014 Oregon 028


Steadfast endurance

Through every tide of every season,

Day and night,

Timeless beyond our reckoning.
