Crashed

tsunami of life
overturns imagined order
in the picture perfect
chaos of existence

jetties lead nowhere
piers struggle for support
as unpredictable tides
cannot hold the ship
moored to land

I see a shapeless mass
of harboured hopes
crashing into the sea
losing identity

  1. Oh so well done….to describe the pier, the harbor with the tides and the ship – I’m thinking you’re going to get to a safe harbor here….and then to use the word “harbor” as
    “a shapeless mass
    of harboured hopes
    crashing into the sea
    losing identity”
    It shifts the reader a bit.
    Really liked your response to the prompt! So glad you participated.
