Warriors Part 1

NaPoWriMo 4/17 "Warriors Part 1"

We believed we were warriors
until the day we fought the Ocean.
At first, we thought we beat it but 
brief retreat is only its nature;
It surged back, nearly drowned us.
Soggy, exhausted,
salt stinging our eyes, 
we wept salt water
into salt water
amid ruined battlements made of sand.

  1. "salt water into salt water" is a nice image. A nice combo of enjoyable and mysterious in a compact form.
