Barnacle Beauty

Hammond Trail, McKinleyville CA

You sit and wait
For the tide

To turn where you
Are hidden once again, feeding

Until full others marvel at the beauty
Your barnacles, intricate

Miniature mountains reaching randomly
So delicate you shatter

With any pressure applied
Yet so strong, your grip

There is no way to remove you
From your chosen rock

You see sunsets, arguments
Dogs chasing sticks

Birds swarming, clouds forming
All you do is sit

The water glistens behind you
The sun sweeps

Through the sky
You are so small and brittle

Yet a lovely treasure
To find

    1. Glad you noticed Sari 🙂 The other one didn’t quite work as well as this one. It was fun to work on! I sure learn a lot with Monochrome Madness.
