"At High Tide"

Hawthorne Valley Waldorf School
Columbia County, NY

At high tide
I stand completely still
I feel the damp sand under my feet
I smell the salt water that has overwhelmed the air
I see the waves breaking and billowing
I hear the sand being crushed by the waves

As the cold water engulfs my feet
I watch the horizon line still and fragile
The sun melts into the water
The resplendent colors glow
I am at peace with the world around me
All at high tide
