Two common stones
on a nest of rock
tumbled together with every shock.
The rushing race of surf and sand
transforms our place,
still we stand.
The wash of waves,
the swell and eddy
carves us ‘round, but still we’re steady.
Rough edges ground to a perfect fit,
we nestle together
and here we sit.
Sprayed with salt, baked by sun,
in twilight’s calm
we sit as one.
Through ebb and flow of every tide,
I rest securely by your side.
