Peace is found in the turmoil of the sea. [The Quadrilew]

The Beach

Winds weave clouds’ design;
waves kiss the sandy shore.
Wonders so divine
the soul cannot ignore.

Waves kiss the sandy shore,
endlessly churning,
then pulled to sea once more,
forever yearning.

Wonders so divine,
as far as sight can reach—
winds and waves entwine,
breaching beyond the beach.

The soul cannot ignore
the powerful peace
of surfs' deafening roar
and ebbs’ soft release.

[a quatrain with an abab rhyming scheme, repeating lines, and alternating syllable structure]
