Tidepools

Starfish

Tidepools

Endless sea waves foam and sway
Stones to gem-like polish.
There in tide pools made a home
Beguiling to a starfish.
 
Water sighing in the waves
On rocks and sandy shore,
Filled the pools with newborn life
Treasures to behold.
 
Some in pensive mood
Beckoned by their muse,
Lingered long in passing
To understand the truth.
 
Others frenzied in a rush,
Would not pause and could not see
Crushed beneath their restless soles
Beauty.
