Artist's Description

Death-like sparks burn cold and hard
A symphony of sea salt soldiers
Shaping their invasion on awaiting land

Leaping from splashes
Grasping for oxygen
A rush to do battle come the day, come the time

Roaring to shore in spectacular voice
To crush the life from a million weeping pebbles
As they pray for forgiveness
Down on bended knee
Begging for second chances

And all the while
Eyes peer from deep forbidden sea
For a slender gaze at the battle afoot
Gossiping like fishwives over sips of milky tea
As they twitch through heavy net curtains
And tut tut tut at the youth of today

Then scuttle away
Chasing the tails of those who fled first
As the wounded and fallen lay still behind

Time to draw a new breath whilst plans are redrawn
And commence another charge toward the quivering shore
