“I Wave Farewell To My Friends” (A Riddle)

The wind breathes life into me.
The sea nourishes my growth.
Sandy shores break my spirit.
The tide carries me back home.

    Nature always wins, due to ebb and flow,
    [not to mention the moon]

    Something to do with the waves at the seashore! Nicely VB!


  15. So cool! You buried the hint in the title! And so perfect, four simple lines with a beautifully parallel construct, such a little gem of a riddle-as-poem.

    VB, compact and powerful, and yet also lyrical. So well penned ~
