The Sea

By Damien Knight

The sea flows and ebbs, forward and back
The skies glimmer with pinks and reds
My daughter plays in the sand, mouth slack
Her hands thoughtful as she builds her castle
The horizon a boat speeds by waves break
My son runs along the line foot prints in sand
He charges kicks down her castle
“Daddy!” she cries and I take her hand
The sky is purple now, I gather her shovel and bucket
Her pretty strawberry head cries
“You only have eachother,” I scold, “dont forget.”
“Yes sir,” they whimper as we pack our things
The sea which was glistening turquoise earlier
Now reflected the purple black sky
My young ones at heel to the hotel
These are the memories I won’t let pass by

The Tide

By Damien Knight

Our love is like the moon and sea.
The moon pushes and the sea pulls.
The stars sparkle in the skies
Your smile shines in my eyes.

I have the moon, the stars, and sea
All I long for back to me.
No one claimed passion to be easy.
Nothing of worth isn’t fought for

My sword stands ready, my heart sure
I will not fear my love for her.
We are constant as the tide.
Forever bound I’ll make her mine!
