The Salty Sea

The Salty seaAs I walked beside the sea on the beach
The deafening roar would drown everything
I wondered if the sea had  a life of its own
or was it the creatures in it that gave it life?

The fish and the turtles with numerous shells
were beckoning me to enter it, to behold
creatures that never existed on dry land
or was it tempting me to be a part of it?

The air made salty with the white surf
timid waves changing into high tides,
froth floating on the shallow surface
What could its great depths be hiding?

How could the sea be so salty? I wondered
with all the rain and fresh water flowing into it
It was a moment later,  it dawned upon me
The Sea took everything with a pinch of salt…
