Diminishing Tides

Teacup Dictionary
In a teacup dictionary poem the dictionary word is the title. Each following line must define the word, but drops one syllable per line, starting with the first line decending until there is a one syllable word that defines the dictionary word.
The next line, must have the same number of syllables as the dictionary word and makes an observation about the dictionary word or the preceeding lines. The poem is usually centered on the page.
The teacup dictionary poem was created by Rose Jones in 2009

Diminishing Tide
Ocean recedes
Then returns
All tides
