Elle (theroadtoelle) wrote,

Piha Beach

Prompt: Write a poem about some summer activity using enjambment.

The low rumble of the surf gives
way to sweet whispers as waves
lick at the black sand writhing
beneath an ardent summer sun.
With each wet swipe and stolen
taste, the sea retreats to savour,
then inevitably returns for more.
