In the furrowed sand,

puddles fill the hollow spaces,

the tide slowly overtakes the strollers,

wandering out into the vast expanse

of Sandymount Strand.


I recall the time we sat in the car

near Sligo -

tossing Atlantic waves bamboozling us,

the sea circling our space,

the car sinking in the sliding sand.


Working at our art, we take risks,

move out into wider horizons

and flourish,

but the surrounding tide is waiting

and swallows all our masterpieces.
