Something I heard


Something I heard

We’ve had a few high tides lately
And a recent storm has left the normally placid and fairly stationary shingle
Spread out down the sand somewhat.

I’ve always loved water,
Particularly the sea,
Particularly beaches,
But most of all; this beach, my beach.

I’ve rarely seen a tide so high.
So tonight I went exploring,
My beach,
But different.

And that is when I heard it.
The sound of a wave pulling back through loose shingle.
Not much, maybe,
But that pulling, tumbling, clacking, clapping, laughing, calling sound,
Resonated with a joy string in my heart
And left it ringing.
