Ebb and flood

Continually twice in a day
the oceans come and go.
It is the moon, so people say,
which draws the water flow.

The power of the moving tide
keeps us on our toes,
we wouldn’t dare put it aside,
respect how far it rose.

And when sea levels go on rising
the flood builds higher waves.
So engineers are now advising
to watch how it behaves.

The sea will claim all land that’s low
unless our dykes do grow and grow.

Aus meinem Buch:

The theme of living with the sea can be found in pictures and the poems that were inspired by the pictures. The atmosphere in the pictures is wonderful and alone worth buying. My modest poetry is short and to the point. So you are not distracted from the pictures, but maybe start enjoying my crazy ideas.
