Rock Fortress - a poem

California coastline

The waves of time hit the rocky shore

Pounding the rock walls that sturdily stand

Fortress to the flowering shore

Protecting all behind its stalwart rock walls

Each wave brings life upon the sandy beach

The deep, dark shadows of life, however, invade each crevice

Of the rocks, creeping to get in; trying to find an opening

To slip slyly by without notice

But, the rocks hold firm; nothing gets through

A wall of rock protects all life behind it

As your heart stands firm as a rock fortress

Surrounding my blossoming heart.
