Song of the Sea (poem)

I walk along the beach alone
The shingle crunches underfoot
And whispers to me
As waves push
And then drag the tiny pebbles with them
Listen to the waves
Listen to the shingle
Their infectious melody, a calming ebb and flow
In synergy with my breath, in and out
Lulled by the song of the sea

    I really like the line “the shingle crunches underfoot”. I’m not sure exactly what it is about it that grabs me so much, but it just sounds really good.

      It makes me think of the noise made by a rainmaker/rainstick.
