By Irene Surprenant


I am a wave

I splash on soft shore

I feel the yellow sand

Fishes gliding in me

All windy days

I am so big


So big


A tsunami

On sunny days

I am so small


not even there

Birds chirping above me

I am salty

The sky above me

making me blue

Without it, I’d be clear

People throwing trash in me

I hope it would stop soon

Because of the fishes

eating it


I can’t feel

so many


scaly bodies

rubbing against

me anymore

But then more fish

get born

I feel them once again

I am so happy
