We create

against the elements

building dreams before the wind

crafting fairy tales

upon the shore

for the sea to take at her whim

We create

against the tides

worlds shifting upon the sand

holding the future

unsteady and tentative

within our trembling hands

We create

visions still unseen

at the mercy of the Fates

and our own folly

shaping a future longed for still

out of our painful hopes

unspoken – Caroline A. Slee
