Some poetry for @contestbuddies's prompt: Emerge, grasp, curl.

tendrils and waves

Seeking tendrils

Seeking tendrils reach out their fluid arms,

Seeking tendrils reach out their fluid arms, rising from places dark

Seeking tendrils reach out their fluid arms, rising from places dark as the eternal abyss,

Seeking tendrils reach out their fluid arms, rising from places dark as the eternal abyss, smooth as the night sky

Seeking tendrils reach out their fluid arms, rising from places dark as the eternal abyss, smooth as the night sky Foaming bubbles,

Seeking tendrils reach out their fluid arms, rising from places dark as the eternal abyss, smooth as the night sky Foaming bubbles, white as the moonlight glancing off

Seeking tendrils reach out their fluid arms, rising from places dark as the eternal abyss, smooth as the night sky Foaming bubbles, white as the moonlight glancing off the surface of the dark sea,

Seeking tendrils reach out their fluid arms, rising from places dark as the eternal abyss, smooth as the night sky Foaming bubbles, white as the moonlight glancing off the surface of the dark sea, greeted them with muted cries

The waters lap greedily at the beach,

The waters lap greedily at the beach, grasping onto the sands,

The waters lap greedily at the beach, grasping onto the sands, and pulling them into the dark,

The waters lap greedily at the beach, grasping onto the sands, and pulling them into the dark, where they are swept away

The waters lap greedily at the beach, grasping onto the sands, and pulling them into the dark, where they are swept away They travel out,

The waters lap greedily at the beach, grasping onto the sands, and pulling them into the dark, where they are swept away They travel out, those small grains of sand,

The waters lap greedily at the beach, grasping onto the sands, and pulling them into the dark, where they are swept away They travel out, those small grains of sand, following the ocean's currents,

The waters lap greedily at the beach, grasping onto the sands, and pulling them into the dark, where they are swept away They travel out, those small grains of sand, following the ocean's currents, and finding a new home on a new shore,

The waters lap greedily at the beach, grasping onto the sands, and pulling them into the dark, where they are swept away They travel out, those small grains of sand, following the ocean's currents, and finding a new home on a new shore, I pray

The waves skim the surface of the water,

The waves skim the surface of the water, little spirals atop a land of inky blackness,

The waves skim the surface of the water, little spirals atop a land of inky blackness, tossing and turning

They splash,

They splash, leaving imprints and ripples on a bumpy surface,

They splash, leaving imprints and ripples on a bumpy surface, always moving,

They splash, leaving imprints and ripples on a bumpy surface, always moving, always churning

The sands are still floating,

The sands are still floating, lost,

The sands are still floating, lost, lost,

The sands are still floating, lost, lost, lost...

The sands are still floating, lost, lost, lost... ashes floating and dying

The sands are still floating, lost, lost, lost... ashes floating and dying in the wake of a fire burning

Palm trees flail their long leaves,

Palm trees flail their long leaves, dancing a strange duet with the wind,

Palm trees flail their long leaves, dancing a strange duet with the wind, reaching, grasping, curling around empty air

Palm trees flail their long leaves, dancing a strange duet with the wind, reaching, grasping, curling around empty air We humans skip upon the beach,

Palm trees flail their long leaves, dancing a strange duet with the wind, reaching, grasping, curling around empty air We humans skip upon the beach, the breeze blowing to and fro

Palm trees flail their long leaves, dancing a strange duet with the wind, reaching, grasping, curling around empty air We humans skip upon the beach, the breeze blowing to and fro curling tendrils of our sun-kissed hair

The sands drift gently across the ocean,

The sands drift gently across the ocean, searching, seeking,

The sands drift gently across the ocean, searching, seeking, until they land on another shore,

The sands drift gently across the ocean, searching, seeking, until they land on another shore, join the family at the other end

The sands drift gently across the ocean, searching, seeking, until they land on another shore, join the family at the other end And there they sit,

The sands drift gently across the ocean, searching, seeking, until they land on another shore, join the family at the other end And there they sit, under the sun,

The sands drift gently across the ocean, searching, seeking, until they land on another shore, join the family at the other end And there they sit, under the sun, waiting for the tendrils and waves

The sands drift gently across the ocean, searching, seeking, until they land on another shore, join the family at the other end And there they sit, under the sun, waiting for the tendrils and waves to grasp and bring them on the

The sands drift gently across the ocean, searching, seeking, until they land on another shore, join the family at the other end And there they sit, under the sun, waiting for the tendrils and waves to grasp and bring them on the same,

The sands drift gently across the ocean, searching, seeking, until they land on another shore, join the family at the other end And there they sit, under the sun, waiting for the tendrils and waves to grasp and bring them on the same, long journey again
