Perpetually

Today’s Ragtag Daily Prompt: BREAK
Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt: PERPETUAL

Perpetual Motion

Perpetually they roll
washing hourly against
the withstanding rock.
Lulls there may be
days when waves lie flat,
the sea regroups
but the war will carry on;

assaulting waves, aroused,
will return, be repelled,
yet grain by grain the granite
will yield bits of itself			
to the relentless breakers.

I stand amazed, watching
the ceaseless sea at work,
knowing I won’t live to see
waves pull even a foot
of this resistant rock
into their briny depths.
Knowing this conflict will rage
to perpetuity.
